Well, I've done this a bit in other languages that had date fields. Basically, I would build a date MM/01/YY by taking the current month and current year, and making the day 01. Then subtract one day. And it would be the last day of the previous month. I am not sure if we can do date math (haven't played around with date fields all that much yet) but if you can, this should work fine.
