    Question Unanswered: "the date two months ago (from today)" ?

    Hi all.

    I'm trying to create an iif statement that basically says:

    If "the date imported" field is greater than "the date two months ago (from today), then update the field to "new", if not update it to "preorder"

    aka

    IIf [tablexyz].[date imported] > "the date two months ago (from today)", "new", "preorder"

    The problem is that I don't know the correct way to indicate this value
    "the date two months ago (from today)".

    Anyone
    Much thanks in advance.

    Hm, will an IIF statement work this way?

    IIf(this value is true, then continue on to this next IIf statement)

    aka

    IIf([tablexyz].[Status]="pre", IIf(([Hazel’s Beloved Products File].[QtyOnHand]>0,”new”
