I need some help with a macro variable that will equal the value of the day before the previous months end date.  I can get previous month end date but how to I create another macro variable for the day before that date?

 

I have made several attempts but they never resolve to what I need.

 

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you,
