    Hit F1 and then search for the function CALCDATE

    "Calculates a new date based on a date expression and a reference date."

    CALCDATE is right ... <-CY> would give you the first day of the current year and <-1Y> would reduce this by one your so CALCDATE('<-CY-1Y'>, TODAY) would give you the first day of the previous year. CALCDATE('<-CY-1M>', TODAY) would give you the first of december of the previous year.

    The <> are very important because they make the formula language independent.
