## Previous month issue

Hello,

I need to extract previous month for today.

I tried previousmonth= date(year(today ()),month(today) - 1,day(today()))

But it displays 02/03/2021 which is wrong, how to correct it please?

@Anonymous , because there is no 30th in feb , Try a measure like

``previousmonth = Var _1 = date(year(today ()),month(today()) - 1,day(today())) Return if(EOMONTH(today(),-1) < _1, EOMONTH(today(),-1) , _1)``
