Looking for a way to calculate a three month average with three criterias (Transaction date, Area and product id).

Current code is: MovingAverage: DAvg("Sales","Table1","Area ='" & [Area] & "' AND Month(format(TransactionDate,'mm/dd/yyyy') <" & (Month(Format([TransactionDate],'mm/dd/yyyy')+2)\3))

Struggeling with the Transaction date as I only receive an error in the query (the data is only monthly and all data is therefor set to 1/1/2015 for Jan and 2/1/2015 for feb).

I would also need product ID to be part of the criteria for the three month moving average.

Any suggestions?  I've attached the test database as well.
