I need a cell that will pull the previous month in this format yyyymm.
For instance, this is July, so I need the cell to populate 201606 (june 2016)
August should be 201607

Also, I need a rolling 12 month also, so if the result is 201607, I need another cell to populate 201508

Can anyone help??

You may have the following formula in any cell...

=EOMONTH(TODAY(),-1)

Open in new window

and then custom format the formula cell with yyyymm.

Now for another date you may have something like....
=DATE(YEAR(TODAY())-1,MONTH(TODAY())+1,1)

Open in new window

Hi,

you could try ( with the right format "yyyymm" )
=DATE(YEAR(TODAY()),MONTH(TODAY()),0)
=DATE(YEAR(TODAY()),MONTH(TODAY())-10,0)

Open in new window

Or you may replace the second formula with this....

=EOMONTH(EDATE(A2,-12),2)
