## create date from a variable

HI,

I have created a variable called _lastdate.

I would need another variable that shows _lastdate minus 1 month, so if _lastdate is 15 July 2022, _1month should be 15 June 2022.

Formula below gives an error message:

Hi @bsz412

Try to update your code like this:
CHrn vs Last =
Var _Lastdate= calculte(...)
Var _Last_Year = year(_Lastdate)
Var _Last_Month = month(_Lastdate)
Var _Last_Day = Day(_Lastdate)
Var _1month=Date(_Last_Year,_Last_Month-1,_Last_Day)
