Hi,

I have the attached as part of my WHERE clause
 
 The "GL_Calendar_Details_"."Fiscal_Period_"  and  "GL_Calendar_Details_"."Fiscal_Year_" fields are int32.

I am not getting any results returned probably because the MONTH and YEAR functions are returning a varchar type.  How can I modify my code?

Thanks,
Bruce

   and YEAR("General_Ledger_Transactions_"."Effective_Date_") = "GL_Calendar_Details_"."Fiscal_Year_"
   and "General_Ledger_Transactions_"."Entity_" = "GL_Calendar_Details_"."Entity_"

which is not what I asked for :)
note: try to get "updated" on the OUTER JOIN syntax, the (+) stuff is
1) quite unreadable
2) subject to get less performant results

however, it shall not influence the results of the query.
