The subMonth() function takes dateTimeValue and numberOfMonths as arguments. It returns the dateTimeValue after subtracting the specified number of months from it. The date-time value will be returned in the format specified in Application Settings.
This function will consider the number simply in terms of months. Therefore, the number of days being subtracted could vary for different date-time values. For example, 01-Jan-2019 to 01-Feb-2019 and 01 Feb-2019 to 01-Mar-2019 will be considered 1 month each, although the number of days in each case is different.
