# Fiscal Year as a dynamic filter

I know where the FY settings are for an Application and how to set it.  I also know how to use it on a Chart under the filter settings.

But, I don't want to filter my chart by Fiscal Year.  Rather, I want my FY field to be a dynamic filter.  So, how do I create a field, and the formula, to put in FY based on another date field.

Specific example, we have a Customer Sat Survey.  I can potentially use either date field.  Date Created or (user inputed) Date of Contact.  I want a FY field that looks at this specific date and assigns it to a Fiscal year and then puts that year in the field.  I can then designate that field as a dynamic filter.

• yes, you can use a formula to calculate the fiscal year.   Can you tell us what your rules are for the fiscal year start with an example?

• Mark,

Of course.  We start our FY Oct 1 and the FY # is the following year.  i.e. Oct 1, 2023 is the start of the FY 24 year.

• Here is one examnple that calculates to a formay like FY24

var number FiscalYear = If(Month([Invoice Date])>=10, Year([Invoice Date])+1, Year([Invoice Date]));

"FY" & Right(ToText(\$FiscalYear),2)
or else this would be numeric
If(Month([Invoice Date])>=10, Year([Invoice Date])+1, Year([Invoice Date]))
