DateTime value in UTC time.
•If the application has to display the return value, it implicitly converts it to text, thereby allowing the display format to change depending on your culture code. See Available Languages and Cultures for a list of the culture codes used by Service Manager.
•If the return value would not be a valid date, the function returns the last day of the month. For example, in the following function: $(AddMonths(4, mydate)), if the value of the mydate parameter is October 31, 2014, this function would have returned February 31, 2015, but because that is not a valid date, the function returns February 28, 2015 because that is the last day of the month.
If today is April 10, 2014, this function returns the DateTime value for 9 months ago (three quarters and each quarter is three months) which is July 10, 2013.
If today is April 10, 2014, this function returns the DateTime value for July 10, 2014 at the same time of day.
If the value of the mydate parameter is April 10, 2014, this function returns the DateTime value for October 10, 2014 at the same time of day.
