sum values between two calendar dates

Hi Everyone 🙂 

 

Background of problem, 

 

I have a calendar table, however it is not by the financial year I want to use, my companies financial year run from 1st October till the 30th of September the following year (e.g. 1/10/13 - 30/09/14 = FY14). I have managed to get my financial quarters correct by the year. However when I put this data in matrix table it splits up the year unless I specify with the quarter :(. Is it possible to create a new column that will have my financial year (1/10/13 - 30/09/14) as FY14 and the revenue values between this date band will sum, so I'm effectively summing between two dates? Is this possible? or is there a more straightfoward way to create a October to September calendar year? 

 

Thank you in advance and I hope my explanation above is not as convoluted as it sounds to me 😕 and I hope someone is able to help. 

 

Kind regards,

Check if you're looking for a calendar table as below?

calendar = 
ADDCOLUMNS (
    ADDCOLUMNS (
        CALENDAR ( "2012-10-01", "2022-09-30" ),
        "FiscalYear", IF ( MONTH ( [Date] ) < 10, YEAR ( [Date] ), YEAR ( [Date] ) + 1 ),
        "FiscalQuarter", SWITCH (
            TRUE (),
            MONTH ( [Date] ) >= 10
                && MONTH ( [Date] ) <= 12, "Q1",
            MONTH ( [Date] ) >= 1
                && MONTH ( [Date] ) <= 3, "Q2",
            MONTH ( [Date] ) >= 4
                && MONTH ( [Date] ) <= 6, "Q3",
            MONTH ( [Date] ) >= 7
                && MONTH ( [Date] ) <= 9, "Q4"
        )
    ),
    "FiscalYearQuarter", [FiscalYear] & "_"
        & [FiscalQuarter]
)

Re: sum values between two calendar dates

So, yes, generally you would have date table that contains all of the information about particular dates such as Month, Year, Fiscal Year, Fiscal Quarter, etc. Like:

 

Date,Day,Month,Quarter,Year,Fiscal Month,Fiscal Quarter,Fiscal Year

1/10/13,1,10,Q4,2013,1,1,2014

 

You relate this to your fact table by date and then you can easily sum values within particular fiscal years, etc.
