    Display end of month date for previous month

    I have a reporting spreadsheet that gets updated monthly and I need to have a cell display when the last report was taken in relation to the current date. i.e. if today is 6/20/2011 I need the date of report cell to say 5/31/2011 because that is the date of the most recent update.

    Try this regular formula:
    =TODAY()-DAY(TODAY())
    or
    =EOMONTH(TODAY(),-1)

    Format the formula's cell as a date.

    Is that something you can work with?
