How to make dynamic titles of month.

I am working on 3 matrix to show data of this month, next month, and the month after next month. These matrix will update automatically every month. For example, now is Jun, so these matrix show data of Jun, Jul and Aug, respectively. Next month, these will change to Jul, Aug and Sep automatically.

 

I've 2 questions:

 

1) When I use DAX like this for the first matrix (this month): 

Title1 = "Forcast this month, " & FORMAT(MONTH(TODAY()),"mmmm"
 
It always shows January, but not June. I'm wondering why?? How to fix this?

2) How to make dynamic titles for my second and third matrix, to show next month and the month after next month, which can automatically update every month. I mean, now, they can show Jul and Aug. When it's July, it will show Aug and Sep. Please be careful about Month11&12&1 and 12&1&2 issues.
 
Many thanks! Will accept answer really quickly!

Re: How to make dynamic titles of month.

Hi @Mengqi ,

It seems that you want to create the dynamic titles of month for matrix.

By my tests, you could try the measures below.

Spoiler
this month = "forcast start this month,"&FORMAT(TODAY(),"MMMM")
next month =
VAR next_month =
    DATE ( YEAR ( TODAY () ), MONTH ( TODAY () ) + 1, 1 )
RETURN
    FORMAT ( next_month, "MMMM" )
month after next month =
VAR month_after_next_month =
    DATE ( YEAR ( TODAY () ), MONTH ( TODAY () ) + 2, 1 )
RETURN
    FORMAT ( month_after_next_month, "MMMM" )

Here is the output.

Hope this can help you.
