query for transaction date in an accounting periods

Posted on 2014-01-08

I have a Period table that has the Accounting periods (start date & end date) along with a PeriodID for the period - 1 for Jan, 2 for Feb etc.

The periods are set up on a 4-4-5 week schedule so the dates do not correspond to beginning and end of each month.

I have a transaction table that has a transaction date filed.  I would like to make a query that will look at the date in the transaction table and find which period it belongs in then put that periodID in a column in the results.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for your help.
