Creating the 1st day of the month field

Creating the 1st day of the month field

Creating the 1st day of the month field

I have a report that shows employees that have worked at least 6 months from the date the report is run.  I am creating a derived field to display their Coverage Begin Date as being the 1st day of the following month.  So, if my company seniority day is 04/03/2005 than my Coverage Begin Date would be 11/01/2005.  The Add_months function can get me 11/03/2005 but I need it to display the first day of the 7th month.
The Last_Day function works great for this but I need it to show the First day not the last.  Any ideas on an easy way to do this?



RE: Creating the 1st day of the month field

Could you add 6 months then do a last_day + 1
