New month /year columns base off date field base off accounting calender


I need to summarize data totals of supplier receipts for each month by our company accounting calender. So for Jan-2017 for this year, I would need to summizae total of all the receipts by the  supplier code from Jan-2-2017 to Feb-5-2017 (Week 1 to Week 5). I perfer to have a new column withthe accounting calender month /year base off the Date Received field in the attached post but have the correct claender month if the last week goes into next week, So Feb-2-2017 would show as Jan-2017 in the new column for our account calender month.

@bu965 -


Perhaps a possible solution could be found in my blog post @ ? I am sure there could be a way to programmatically re-assign the period names however, I could not come up with one in my attempts this morning. It must be my 'pretty day'.
