Hello Experts,

I am trying to build a formula to be used in selection parameter to select the END of the "CurrentQuarter" and the "LastQuarter".  Here is what I have so far, it works fine to select the begining date , just need the last date of the quarter.

Current Formula:
else if (rptPeriod = "CURRENTQUARTER") Then
    bdt := Date(Year( Today),Month(DateAdd('m', -(Month(Today) Mod 3 + 2) mod 3, Today)),01)
else if (rptPeriod = "LASTQUARTER") Then
    bdt := Date(Year(DateAdd('m', (-(((Month(Today) Mod 3) + 2) mod 3)-3), Today)),Month(DateAdd('m', (-(((Month(Today) Mod 3) + 2) mod 3)-3), Today)),01)

bdt;

Try this

CurrentQtrStart
DateVar bdt; 
bdt := Date(Year( Today),DatePart('q',Today) * 3 - 2, 1)

Open in new window


CurrentQtrEnd
DateVar edt; 
edt := Date(DateAdd('q', 1,{@CurrentQtrStart}) - 1)

Open in new window


LastQtrStart
DateVar bdt; 
bdt := Date(DateAdd('q',-1,{@CurrentQtrStart}))

Open in new window


LastQtrEnd
DateVar edt; 
edt := {@CurrentQtrStart} - 1

Open in new window
