date format as YYYYMM

date format as YYYYMM

date format as YYYYMM

I have a default value in a report as YYYYMM.

I run this report on the first day of each month.

Delfault value need´s be last month with this format YYYYMM

In the past I have used

But for this report I can't use this it needs to be YYYYMM

RE: date format as YYYYMM

Not used Cdate before and is not recognised by my copy of MSSQL 2016
You could try changing your CDate section to

CDate('01/'+substring(datefield, 4,2)+'/'+substring(datefield, 1,4)

replace datefield with your field holding YYYYMM, I have assumed this is a string field, if a number then you will need to cast as string first.
