Most of what I do in EG is analysis and data preparation for my models in EG. A co-worker of mine asked me about automating her reports in EG, namely, specifying the time frame to run, and have the next month run, under the most recent 12 months filter. Ideas? I have no need to automate so I am lost on this one.

Create some prompts that are the dates then use those in the report to filter it out. Are you running EG on a server or Desktop?
Ton's of examples online but here's a basic tutorial:

There are many papers written on this topic, the paper referenced has some towards the end. Unfortunately without way more details its hard to get into specifics that would be relevant to you. Your EG version would also be necessary as there are different methods in each version.
The way I'd do it, if I had no experience is create the reports in EG using your specified date cut offs. Once you have the reports set up, you can add in the macro variables/prompts to get the report set up, but that will end up being the last step anyways.
