@sbhatnagar88 ,

Try

`````` |makeresults
|eval months=strftime(mvrange(relative_time(_time,"-3mon@mon"),relative_time(_time,"@mon+1"),"1mon"),"%B %Y")
|mvexpand months
``````

Detailed/expanded version

``````|makeresults
|eval earliest=relative_time(_time,"-3mon@mon")
|eval latest=relative_time(_time,"@mon+1")
|eval months=mvrange(earliest,latest,"1mon")
|eval months=strftime(months,"%B %Y")
|mvexpand months|table months

I believe you need to change the maximum amount of results your query can display before you can do this. Unless you're talking about the actual syntax query.

Are you talking about the query or about not being able to see 4 months of data?
