I would like to create a report that will show side by side the Current Year and the Previous Year calculation for MTD and YTD.  How do I do the calculations for the previous year.

I am attaching  the database with fiscal years split Current to be "14" and previous to be "13". and also a sample of the report that I am looking for.

Thanks

Don't know what your final resolution was on your data structure (and am unable to download your database at the moment), but that is one of the reasons I mentioned changing your data structure and inserting a Date/Time field into your table in my response yesterday.

Now hat you have added a column for fiscal year then this is definitely possible to do.

 I am working on an example for you now. Be back shortly...
