FM - Can You Get a Range of Values, Not Just one Value?

Have a "YearWeek" table that summarizes "Leads" data by Week in several different fields.  Created a list field that pulls together all the fields in the YearWeek table and then in the main "Leads" table's script used the List function to list all the records going back a year.  However, now boss only wants to go back 4 months.  Can I do that with the GetValue function?  Looked it up, but it doesn't seem to accept an arugment for range of values.  How would you do it?

I think you should be able t do it by altering the relationship that restricts it to a year which presumably include a date range or at least a year field as part of the predicate. If it's a year field you'll need to replace it with a date field (or create a separate relationship if you want to  keep the Year based one) and a greater than or equal to relationship. You might need a calculation field that simply calculates current date less four months and then relate that to the lead records.

Thanks, Will.  I ended up creating a new T.O. so as not to affect the existing T.O. Link and just linked the YrMon4MonsAgo to YearMonth via a calc field as you suggest above and it worked fine.  Too bad that don't have a range of GetValues.

There are ways to do that include custom functions but you would still need a way do determine which record to start with four months ago. That's probably easier done just using the relationship.

I was thinking of a GetRecordCount then a value range that is subtracted from that such as 246 (# of records representing # of weeks in the table) - 17 ( the amount of weeks my boss wants me to go back).  Just looking more for ways to save T.O.s as my Relationships graph is getting busy, even organizing it into clusters.
