When using the subtract -1 from the current month will the Year also be accounted for when the current month is January and previous month is December?

When using "Date Manipulation" within the "Timestamp" task, GoAnywhere will account for year differences. Thus, if the current month is January and you input "-1" into the "Month" field, the generated timestamp value will reflect December of the previous year. Similarly, GoAnywhere will account for date differences when subtracting hours, minutes, etc.
