DAX Formulas for Fiscal Year, Fiscal Quarter and Month Short Name

1. First Step

Create 2 new column on your DATA report:

1. Month = MONTH(Table[Date])

2. Year = YEAR(Table[Date])

 

2. Fiscal Year

Creat a new column for Fiscal Year:

Fiscal Year = IF(AND([Year] =2012,[Month]<=12),"FY13",

IF(AND([Year] =2013,[Month]<=6),"FY13",

IF(AND([Year] =2013,[Month]<=12),"FY14",        

IF(AND([Year] =2014,[Month]<=6),"FY14",

IF(AND([Year] =2014,[Month]<=12),"FY15",

=year(DATEADD('Table'[Date], -3, MONTH))&"-"&year(DATEADD('Table'[Date], -3, MONTH))+1

Hello, 

 

I've tried to use the following section to create a Fiscal Year column:

 

Fiscal Year = 

IF(AND([Year] =2017,[Month]>3),"FY17/18",

IF(AND([Year] =2018,[Month]<4),"FY17/18",

IF(AND([Year] =2018,[Month]>3),"FY18/19",

IF(AND([Year] =2019,[Month]<4),"FY18/19",

IF(AND([Year] =2019,[Month]>3),"FY19/20",

IF(AND([Year] =2020,[Month]<4),"FY19/20"," ")))))))

 

I've tried to do this via creating a custom column and as a measure. Neither is working. 

 

The error when creating a custom column is "Token RightParen Expected". However I have all the right parenthesies I need'; adding or subtracting them makes no difference to the error. 

 

The error in a measure relates to Month and Year not being recognised. 

 

Is anyone able to help me?

 

My aim is to end up with a silcer that has three check boxes in it. The first filters to FY17/18, the next to FY18/19, the third to FY19/20.

 

If anyone can help me I'd really appreciate it. Thanks

My Fiscal year runs from April 1 to March 31.  I found this message very useful in solving my needs.  Here is what I did

 

Step 1.

Create 2 columns, Month and Year  (for my purposes I used a column called Received Date so my columns are titled the same

1.  Received MONTH = tblAssessments[ReceivedDate].[MonthNo]

2.  Received YEAR = tblAssessments[ReceivedDate].[Year]

 

Step 2. 

Create a Fiscal Year Column without having to have YEAR be a calculation of the IF statement

- (Note: Concatenate is limited 2 items in Power BI, I would have preferred to add a "/" between the years

 

Fiscal Year = IF(tblAssessments[Received MONTH]>=4,CONCATENATE(tblAssessments[Received YEAR],tblAssessments[Received YEAR]+1),CONCATENATE(tblAssessments[Received YEAR]-1,tblAssessments[Received YEAR]))
 
example: This code would allow April 2011 to December 2011 to be considered in the fiscal year 2011/2012 and January 2012 to March 2012 to be considered in the fiscal year 2011/2012

* Great Solution!  

* You can do similar leveraging the Conditional Column .  Not as Dynamic as DAX, but perhaps a little easier for those not ready to enter into the world of DAX.

* Excited for MSFT to make this a control within the Application ~~ Anticipating by the end of FY Q2 of '18  🙂

I added the Month & Year columns to my data.

Then I copied the Fiscal Year Query in my custom column creator.

I got the "no syntax errors" confirmation and clicked to proceed.

 

Upon trying to complete this column addition I'm getting:

 
Expression.Error: The name 'IF' wasn't recognized. Make sure it's spelled correctly.

 

= Table.AddColumn("Fiscal Year", each IF(AND([Year] =2012,[Month]<=12),"FY13",
IF(AND([Year] =2013,[Month]<=6),"FY13",
IF(AND([Year] =2013,[Month]<=12),"FY14",
IF(AND([Year] =2014,[Month]<=6),"FY14",
IF(AND([Year] =2014,[Month]<=12),"FY15",
IF(AND([Year] =2015,[Month]<=6),"FY15",
IF(AND([Year] =2015,[Month]<=12),"FY16",
IF(AND([Year] =2016,[Month]<=6),"FY16",
IF(AND([Year] =2016,[Month]<=12),"FY17",
IF(AND([Year] =2017,[Month]<=6),"FY17",
IF(AND([Year] =2017,[Month]<=12),"FY18",
" "))))))))))))

 

 

Please advise. What am I missing?

Hi there,

 

Thank you for posting this. It did give me the idea on how to work this out. However, I think I have made it even more dynamic. My FY is April - March. Here is the formula that I used which works as well but it is dynamic:

 

FY = IF(FY_Calendar[MonthNo]<=3,"FY"&RIGHT(FY_Calendar[Year]-1,2),"FY"&RIGHT(FY_Calendar[Year],2))

Not sure but you may be able to use SWITCH rather than all these nested IFs... also I see you are asking if <=6 and then in next line asking for same year if <=12... unless I'm reading it wrong any number equal to or less than 6 would fall into both statements e.g. 4 is both less than 6 and less than 12! Maybe swap to <=6 and >6 seeing as your month won't go above 12 anyway? Does that make sense?

I've put some of this together to make a generic DateTable creator like so, just need to work out how to make 3 month rolling indicators etc:

 

Simply update the date range required in the dates marked bold below (format is Year, Month, Day) then paste in a new table formula bar:

 

DateTable = ADDCOLUMNS (

   CALENDAR (DATE(2011,1,1), DATE(2018,01,01)),

   "Day",FORMAT([Date],"DDDD"),

   "Year", FORMAT([Date],"YYYY"),

   "Month", FORMAT([Date],"MMMM"),

   "Quarter", SWITCH( TRUE(),

               MONTH([Date]) = 1, "Qtr4",

               MONTH([Date]) = 2, "Qtr4",

               MONTH([Date]) = 3, "Qtr4",

               MONTH([Date]) = 4, "Qtr1",

               MONTH([Date]) = 5, "Qtr1",

               MONTH([Date]) = 6, "Qtr1",

               MONTH([Date]) = 7, "Qtr2",

               MONTH([Date]) = 8, "Qtr2",

               MONTH([Date]) = 9, "Qtr2",

               MONTH([Date]) = 10, "Qtr3",

               MONTH([Date]) = 11, "Qtr3",

               "Qtr3" ),

   "MthYr",CONCATENATE(FORMAT([Date],"MMM"),FORMAT([Date]," YYYY")),

   "QtrYr",CONCATENATE(SWITCH( TRUE(),

               MONTH([Date]) = 1, "Qtr4",

               MONTH([Date]) = 2, "Qtr4",

               MONTH([Date]) = 3, "Qtr4",

               MONTH([Date]) = 4, "Qtr1",

               MONTH([Date]) = 5, "Qtr1",

               MONTH([Date]) = 6, "Qtr1",

               MONTH([Date]) = 7, "Qtr2",

               MONTH([Date]) = 8, "Qtr2",

               MONTH([Date]) = 9, "Qtr2",

               MONTH([Date]) = 10, "Qtr3",

               MONTH([Date]) = 11, "Qtr3",

               "Qtr3" ),FORMAT([Date]," YYYY")

))

Thanks for the post, I have adjusted for use in the UK - please like if useful:

 

1. First Step

Create 2 new columns on your DATA report:

 

1. Month = MONTH(Table[Date])

2. Year = YEAR(Table[Date])

 

2. Fiscal Year

Create a new column for Fiscal Year:

 

Fiscal Year = IF(AND([Year] =2013,[Month]<=3),"FY12",

IF(AND([Year] =2013,[Month]<=12),"FY13",      

IF(AND([Year] =2014,[Month]<=3),"FY13",

IF(AND([Year] =2014,[Month]<=12),"FY14",

IF(AND([Year] =2015,[Month]<=3),"FY14",

IF(AND([Year] =2015,[Month]<=12),"FY15",

IF(AND([Year] =2016,[Month]<=3),"FY15",

IF(AND([Year] =2016,[Month]<=12),"FY16",

IF(AND([Year] =2017,[Month]<=3),"FY16",

IF(AND([Year] =2017,[Month]<=12),"FY17",

" "))))))))))

 

3.  Fiscal Quarter

Create a new column for Fiscal Quarter:

 

Fiscal QTR = IF(([Month]>=1 && [Month]<4),"FQ4",

IF(([Month]>=4 && [Month]<7),"FQ1",

IF(([Month]>=7 && [Month]<10),"FQ2","FQ3")))

 

This provides:

 

2013Qtr 2JuneFQ1FY13
2013Qtr 3JulyFQ2FY13
2013Qtr 3AugustFQ2FY13
2013Qtr 3SeptemberFQ2FY13

2014Qtr 2AprilFQ1FY14
2014Qtr 2MayFQ1FY14
2014Qtr 2JuneFQ1FY14

 

All the best, Oli

Thanks Oli. That was helpful.

For those of you looking to create a relative Quarter Offset - I used this:

Relative Quarter Offset = (4*YEAR([Date]) + ROUNDDOWN(MONTH([Date])/3,1) - (4*YEAR(TODAY()) + ROUNDDOWN(MONTH(TODAY())/3,1)))

Where 'Date' came from my Dim Date table...

 

This means the current quarter returns a zero - the last quarter returns - 1 etc etc... works a treat!

 

(Quarters based on Jan > Mar, Apr > June, Jul > Sept & Oct > Dec)

Fiscal Year Quarter Cut Off works well and it applies to all no matter when the Fiscal Year start, April or October.

 

If you are looking for Fiscal Year CutOff to dynamically display measures of "Current Fiscal Year", "Previous Fiscal Year" and etc.,  Here are the steps and DAX will work.   Please comment if this works, Thank you.

 

Note: Fiscal Year Start from April 1st in this example.

Fiscal Year Number= If(
Month(Date[date])<= 3,
Year(Date[date])-1,
Year(Date[date])
)
Current Fiscal Year Number = If( 
   				Month(today())<= 3, 
Year(today())-1,
Year(today())
)
Fiscal Year CutOff = Date[Fiscal Year Number]-Date[Current Fiscal Year Number]

"Fiscal Year CutOff" = 0, Current Fiscal Year

"Fiscal Year CutOff" = -1, Previous Fiscal Year

I needed to bring back transactions that are in the current fiscal year.  Here is what I did:

 

1.  Created a column called Fiscal Year:

Fiscal Year =
IF(Month(PROJEMPLTRANS[TRANSDATE]) < 11, Value(FORMAT(PROJEMPLTRANS[TRANSDATE], "YYYY")), VALUE(FORMAT(PROJEMPLTRANS[TRANSDATE], "YYYY")) +1)

 

2.  Created a column called Year:

Year = Year(PROJEMPLTRANS[TRANSDATE])

 

3.  Created a column called "IsCurrentFiscalYear"

IsCurrentFiscalYear = If((Year(NOW()) = PROJEMPLTRANS[Fiscal Year]) || (Year(NOW()) = PROJEMPLTRANS[Year] - 1),1,0)

 

Now in my report I simply filtered by the value 1 on the IsCurrentFiscalYear column.

 

Thanks,
