Returns the name of the month previous to the supplied date. Use case: month-end reports run on the first of the month

Sample Input:
PreviousMonthName (01/03/2018)
Sample Output:
February


 Then copy & paste into FileMaker Advanced's Edit Custom Function window.

Description:

This is literally only useful for end of month reports that run on the first of the following month - so for example you might want to call the report "End of Month report for February" but it's run on the 1st of Match.

Note: these functions are not guaranteed or supported by BrianDunning.com. Please contact the individual developer with any questions or problems.
