    You would use something along the lines of these:

    Current month:

    =MONTH(TODAY()) + ", " + YEAR(TODAY())


    Previous Month:

    =IF(MONTH(TODAY()) = 1, 12, MONTH(TODAY()) - 1) + ", " + IF(MONTH(TODAY()) = 1, YEAR(TODAY()) - 1, YEAR(TODAY()))

  • @Paul Newcome Thanks for the formula. By using this formula I get Values as below what is the way to get the Months is Text for Example (December, 2023; November, 2023; October, 2023 etc.......)

    12, 2023

    11, 2023

    10, 2023

    9, 2023

    Hi @Hariharan

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this. (update/modify as needed)

    =IF(Month@row <> "", IF(MONTH(Month@row) = 1, "01 January", IF(MONTH(Month@row) = 2, "02 February", IF(MONTH(Month@row) = 3, "03 March", IF(MONTH(Month@row) = 4, "04 April", IF(MONTH(Month@row) = 5, "05 May", IF(MONTH(Month@row) = 6, "06 June", IF(MONTH(Month@row) = 7, "07 July", IF(MONTH(Month@row) = 8, "08 August", IF(MONTH(Month@row) = 9, "09 September", IF(MONTH(Month@row) = 10, " 10 October", IF(MONTH(Month@row) = 11, "11 November", IF(MONTH(Month@row) = 12, "12 December")

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic weekend!
