Hi,
I know that I can use:
Code:
SORT FIELDS=COPY
OUTREC OVERLAY=(19:DATE1,19:19,8,Y4W)


Which Results in:
Code:
20220601


But how can I just get back the prior month only which would
just be 05 ?

Thanks for your help.

Welcome !

You can search this forum or Google it for similar post , I am sure you will get and try some results.
Btw , what if you are in January month , ideally it should change year too to previous year , is that right ?

Not tested. But see if this works:

Code:
SORT FIELDS=COPY
OUTREC OVERLAY=(19:DATE1,19:19,8,Y4W,SUBMONS,+1,TOGREG=Y4W)

Code:
OPTION COPY                                               
OUTREC OVERLAY=(19:DATE1,19:19,8,Y4T,SUBMONS,+1,TOGREG=Y4T)

would be correct
