Yesterdays Date Prior Month

Hi, i am trying to create simple DAX formula for yesterdays last month however below seems to not work. Not sure where i am going wrong. Any ideas?

`DATE(YEAR(TODAY()),MONTH(TODAY()-1),DAY(TODAY()-1))`

You might have issues when the month is January, & for DAY(TODAY()) = 1 of the month and for march vs february?

If you have a calendar table you can try:

``current date Last month = CALCULATE(MAX('Calendar Table'[Date]), DATEADD('Calendar Table'[Date], -1,MONTH))``
``````Final yesterday Last month =
CALCULATE([current date Last month], FILTER(ALL('Calendar Table'), 'Calendar Table'[Date] = TODAY() -1))``````

Just a teeny tiny parenthesis in the wrong place 🙂

`MONTH(TODAY())-1`
