Did you mean: 

i thought it would be something like DATETIME_FORMAT(TODAY(-30 DAYS), ‘MMMM’)
=> October
or MONTH(TODAY(-30 DAYS) Its the subtracting days part i dont understand
simple i know but im at a loss to make the stupid red letters go away

OR how can i find out what date was 30 days ago and format that? i also need this for 60 days and 90 days to populate on a notice thats printed from page designer and sent certified mail. but i am competent enough to parse those myself once someone lets me cheat off their homework for the first one.

The TODAY() function only returns the current day. It does not take an argument.
To subtract 30 days from today, add a negative number with the DATEADD() function.

DATEADD(TODAY(), -30, 'days')
