Must be dynamic so that in November it filters for September and all previous months.
Is it possible to change the below code to suit?
Cheers Cobber.

Thanks rory...I'll find another way, cheers


For the record.....when I ran the code in Feb, KJBox's code didn't count Jan.
I tried royUK's code in Feb and it counted Jan.....so it appears to work.

Hi KjBox , it works.....I just needed to remove the last End If to suit my code and it worked, cheers

Hi royUK , I tried yours but couldn't get it to work,,,,sorry

Hi KjBox , is this all I need?

HI KjBox , I deleted a couple of lines and it worked perfectly. Thanks again, much appreciated.
CodeIf Month(Date) > 1 Then If Year(x(i, DtCol)) = Year(Date) And Month(x(i, DtCol)) = Month(Date)  1 And x(i, 3) = ContAreas(ii) And x(i, 8) = InspType Then End If ElseIf Year(x(i, DtCol)) = Year(Date)  1 And Month(x(i, DtCol)) = 12 And x(i, 3) = ContAreas(ii) And x(i, 8) = InspType Then 'Your code here If Year(x(i, DtCol)) = Year(Date) And Month(x(i, DtCol)) = Month(Date)  1 And x(i, 3) = ContAreas(ii) And x(i, 8) = InspType Then End If

Hi KjBox , I tried the below code and it ran without an error but still didn't count the data for Dec. Note, I deleted Category from the code, not required.
CodeIf Month(Date) > 1 Then If Year(x(i, DtCol)) = Year(Date) And Month(x(i, DtCol)) = Month(Date)  1 And x(i, 3) = ContAreas(ii) And x(i, 8) = InspType Then 'Your code here If Year(x(i, DtCol)) = Year(Date) And Month(x(i, DtCol)) = Month(Date)  1 And x(i, 3) = ContAreas(ii) And x(i, 8) = InspType Then End If ElseIf Year(x(i, DtCol)) = Year(Date)  1 And Month(x(i, DtCol)) = 12 And x(i, 3) = ContAreas(ii) And x(i, 8) = InspType Then 'Your code here If Year(x(i, DtCol)) = Year(Date) And Month(x(i, DtCol)) = Month(Date)  1 And x(i, 3) = ContAreas(ii) And x(i, 8) = InspType Then End If End If

Hi royUK, I can't attach an example because it's from work. I assumed the problem is that the code substracts from a previous year, see below.
If it isn't a simple change to the code I won't worry about it. Thanks anyway.

Hi, I use the below code to select the previous months data but when I ran the code in January it didn't select the December data. Any help will be much appreciated.

Hi KjBox , that's really great, it will save me heaps of work. Thanks so much.

Hi KjBox , a trap for novices, I didn't actually need 110. I removed them and it's perfect.....thanks so much yet again.
In regard to my other question,
'Also, extra code to EXCLUDE current and previous month but includes ALL months prior ie if macro is run in Sept it only includes July and all prior months, needs to be dynamic.'
Do I just need to change 1 to 2 after the Month(Date) in the code below?

Hi royUK , work perfectly, much appreciated.

Thanks royUK , I'll give them a go, cheers

Hi, I need help with a date code that gives 'Type Mismatch' error and I would also like to modify the date code to exclude the current and previous month and only include all months prior. See notes in the code attached.
Code
Display MoreOption Base 1 Sub DateMonths() Dim x, y, Cols, ContAreas, WrkClss, i As Long, ii As Long, iii As Long Const Category As String = "Standard of Work" Const InspType As String = "Post Work Manual" Const DtCol As Long = 10 '// target date col ContAreas = Array("SECA11", "SECA12", "SECA13", "SECA14", "SECA15", "SECA16") Cols = Array(1, 4, 7, 10, 13, 16, 19, 22, 25) WrkClss = Array("UW", "PW", "VAC*", "MPWCAP", "MOD*", "LGC", "BES", "MPWA", "SMOK") x = Sheets("calculations").[a6].CurrentRegion ReDim y(1 To 6, 1 To 26) For i = 2 To UBound(x, 1) For ii = 1 To 6 'the below code gives TYPE MISMATCH ERROR If Year(x(i, DtCol)) = Year(Date) And Month(x(i, DtCol)) = Month(Date) And x(i, 3) = ContAreas(ii) And x(i, 7) = Category And x(i, 8) = InspType Then 'get Type Mismatch error 'If Year(x(i, DtCol)) = Year(Date) And Month(x(i, DtCol)) = Month(Date)  1 And x(i, 3) = ContAreas(ii) And x(i, 7) = Category And x(i, 8) = InspType Then 'get Type Mismatch error 'Also,extra code to EXCLUDE current and previous month but includes ALL months prior ie if macro is run in Sept it only includes July and all prior months, needs to be dynamic 'If x(i, 3) = ContAreas(ii) And x(i, 7) = Category And x(i, 8) = InspType Then 'this works OK without the date code For iii = 1 To 9 If IsEmpty(y(ii, Cols(iii))) Then y(ii, Cols(iii)) = 0 If x(i, 4) Like WrkClss(iii) Then y(ii, Cols(iii)) = y(ii, Cols(iii)) + 1 End If Next End If Next Next With ActiveSheet .[h5].Resize(6, 26) = y .Activate End With End Sub

Hi royUK , yes I have done that but I would still like VBA if possible, cheers

Hi royUK , other people need to use it at work and it suits better.
I know it's a bit clunky so don't worry if it's a bit difficult, cheers.
