    Two things:

    Firstly, you need to be clear what you mean by rolling three months. Is it:

    The month we are currently in plus the previous 2

    The month we are currently in plus the previous 3

    The previous 3 months before the one we are currently in.

    The second thing - what DBMS are you using as if you are doing it at database level within IDT, you will need to use the correct syntax e.g. Oracle uses sysdate, SQL Server uses getdate
