## Expression Help on Current Fiscal Quarter

Hi

I generated Fiscal Quarter and Fiscal Month from Calendar.

In same calendar, i generated a FiscalQuarterSerial which defines 1, 2 and 3 as First , Second and Third Month of Quarter.

If(FiscalQuarter='Q1' and FiscalMonth='Oct',1

If(FiscalQuarter='Q1' and FiscalMonth='Nov',2

If(FiscalQuarter='Q1' and FiscalMonth='Dec',3

If(FiscalQuarter='Q2' and FiscalMonth='Jan',1

If(FiscalQuarter='Q2' and FiscalMonth='Feb',2

If(FiscalQuarter='Q2' and FiscalMonth='Mar',3

If(FiscalQuarter='Q3' and FiscalMonth='Apr',1

If(FiscalQuarter='Q3' and FiscalMonth='May',2

If(FiscalQuarter='Q3' and FiscalMonth='Jun',3

If(FiscalQuarter='Q4' and FiscalMonth='Jul',1

If(FiscalQuarter='Q4' and FiscalMonth='Aug',2

If(FiscalQuarter='Q4' and FiscalMonth='Sep',3)))))))))))) as FiscalQuarterSerial

I need to derive an expression on front end as

If it is Current Quarter and First Month of Quarter, it should retrieve expression 1,

If it is Current Quarter and Second Month of Quarter, it should retrieve expression 2,

If it is Current Quarter and Third Month of Quarter, it should retrieve expression 3,

For this I had written expression as

If(QuarterName(Today(),0) = QuarterName(Today(),0) and FiscalQuarterSerial=1,

Expression 1,

If(QuarterName(Today(),0) = QuarterName(Today(),0) and FiscalQuarterSerial=2,

Expression 2,

If(QuarterName(Today(),0) = QuarterName(Today(),0) and FiscalQuarterSerial=3,

Expression 3)))

However it is not working

I assume this is not working as current selection on front end is not on FiscalQuarterSerial

Is there anyway to achieve this

The primary idea is to generate different expression depending upon the First, Second and Third Month of Current Quarter

Thanks

This is fixed..

Adding logic for any reference.

Instead of FiscalSerial, i added logic in expression as

=if(Month(Today())='Oct' or Month(Today())='Jan' or Month(Today())='Apr' or Month(Today())='Jul',

Expression1,

if(Month(Today())='Nov' or Month(Today())='Feb' or Month(Today())='May' or Month(Today())='Aug',

Expression2,

if(Month(Today())='Dec' or Month(Today())='Mar' or Month(Today())='Jun' or Month(Today())='Sep',

Expression3)))

Assuming Oct, Jan, Apr and Jul is always 1st Month of quarter, Nov, Feb, May and Aug is always 2nd Month of quarter and so on....

Any ideas?

May be this?

If(QuarterName(Today()) and FiscalQuarterSerial=1, Expression 1,

If(QuarterName(Today()) and FiscalQuarterSerial=2, Expression 2,

If(QuarterName(Today()) and FiscalQuarterSerial=3, Expression 3)))

Hi Anil

Thanks for the response.

Not working.

Also QuarterName(Today()) will give Apr-Jun 2017 and FiscalQuarterSerial is 1.

May be that is why it is not working..

Thanks

Satish

Yes, Here what are expecting instead of Apr-Jun 2017 ??

This is what I'm looking for

Derive 3 different expression depending upon the First, Second and Third Month of Current Quarter.

Can you provide static whether how you want to create Field

If ( Jan = 'Jan', ....) Something like this?

Hi

Didn't get exactly.

How about getting value from FiscalQuarterSerial Listbox. It is retrieving 1, 2 and 3 every time.

Is there a way to derive values from this?

Thanks

Satish

I am sorry, I may not follow you. Would you able to share sample application with inline memory and if you know about expected result please mention that

I removed other stuff, but you can see text box where i need help.

Also in back end you can see how i derived FiscalQuarterSerial. I didn't delete this. Rest of the information is removed as it is confidential.

However you can still see data model as i haven't reload that...

Thanks
