Fiscal Years In Web Intelligence - Business Objects
Posted on 2014-02-12
I'm trying to create a fiscal year variable in Web Intelligence. Our fiscal year is 7-1 of current year to 6-30 of next year. I want this variable to based on a specific date that's in the universe (Uvdate). I want this variable to change as the calendar year changes - meaning automatically.
So, if my universe date (Uvdate) is 2-12-14, this falls in our current fiscal year FY-14 (between 7-1-13 and 6-30-14). If the Uvdate is 2-12-13, then the fiscal year would be FY-13 (between 7-1-12 and 6-30-13).
Additionally, I would like to create two more variables for these fiscal years - for Quarters (every 3 months) and for Thirds (every 4 months). I actually have all these variables but they are hard coded dates.
I ran across a few of these formulas that look close to want I want but don't know how to get the information I need:
Thanks for any assistance you can provide!
