access query fiscal year

How do I modify the below query to select data from the current and last fiscal year instead of calendar year?


SELECT DISTINCT t1.qProductCategory,
    (SELECT SUM(t2.qQuantity)

    FROM YourTable AS t2
    WHERE t2.qProductCategory = t1.qProductCategory AND
    Year(t2.qDate) = Year(now) -1 ) AS Pre1_Qty,
    (SELECT SUM(t2.qQValue)

    FROM YourTable AS t2
    WHERE t2.qProductCategory = t1.qProductCategory AND
    Year(t2.qDate) = Year(now) -1 ) AS Pre1_Value,
    (SELECT SUM(t2.qQuantity)

    FROM YourTable AS t2
    WHERE t2.qProductCategory = t1.qProductCategory AND
    Year(t2.qDate) = Year(now)) AS Now_Qty,
    (SELECT SUM(t2.qQValue)

    FROM YourTable AS t2
    WHERE t2.qProductCategory = t1.qProductCategory AND
    Year(t2.qDate) = Year(now)) AS Now_Value


FROM YourTable AS t1

Define 'fiscal year' for us.  You'll likely need to populate a table of months (weeks, days) so that Access knows as well.

If you mean like the US DoD FY Oct to Sep?

Try this:

SELECT DISTINCT t1.qProductCategory,
    (SELECT SUM(t2.qQuantity)

    FROM YourTable AS t2
    WHERE t2.qProductCategory = t1.qProductCategory AND
    iif(Month(qdate)<10,Year(qdate),Year(qdate)+1) =  
    iif(Month(date)<10,Year(date),Year(date)+1) -1 ) AS Pre1_Qty,
    (SELECT SUM(t2.qQValue)

    FROM YourTable AS t2
    WHERE t2.qProductCategory = t1.qProductCategory AND
    iif(Month(qdate)<10,Year(qdate),Year(qdate)+1) =
    iif(Month(date)<10,Year(date),Year(date)+1) -1 ) AS Pre1_Value,
    (SELECT SUM(t2.qQuantity)

    FROM YourTable AS t2
    WHERE t2.qProductCategory = t1.qProductCategory AND
    iif(Month(qdate)<10,Year(qdate),Year(qdate)+1) =
    iif(Month(date)<10,Year(date),Year(date)+1)) AS Now_Qty,
    (SELECT SUM(t2.qQValue)

    FROM YourTable AS t2
    WHERE t2.qProductCategory = t1.qProductCategory AND
    iif(Month(qdate)<10,Year(qdate),Year(qdate)+1) =
    iif(Month(date)<10,Year(date),Year(date)+1)) AS Now_Value


FROM YourTable AS t1;

fiscal year means the year ends in lets say November 31st instead of December 31st.  I haven't tried your solution GRayL but I will later today.  Could you briefly explain whats happening there?

In this expression, it returns the year of the qdate and date values if the month is less than 10, else it adds one to the year.

    iif(Month(qdate)<10,Year(qdate),Year(qdate)+1) =  
    iif(Month(date)<10,Year(date),Year(date)+1) -1 ) AS Pre1_Qty,

To use a FY 1 Dec thru 30 Nov the following year (my calendar says November has 30 days, not 31!), you would replace the 10's with 12's.

IOW, I used your original query which gave you (I presume) the results you wanted for a calendar year (CY), and subsituted the FY function in place of the CY calls.  In my example it would report on a FY defined as 1 Oct thru 31 Sep the following year.
