Return current period based off of current fiscal year and date


Good Afternoon,

Is there a way in the webi that I can create a dimension that always reflects the current Fiscal Month based of Fiscal year and date? I have a report that I am trying to show sales for a customer based off the current fiscal month. I would like this report when refreshed to be based off this fiscal month dimension instead of showing each fiscal month or changing it manually. What is the best way to do this?

I have attached an image that shows current numbers by period (month) and then the YTD Totals. I would like to have my 'Period' column always reflect the current period and the Total column to reflect that months totals based off the period column. So for this period (3), instead of seeing 3 lines for each month I would just see the '3' and the total as $541,310.46, monthly as 412,502.09 and my YTD as 1,080,091.06.

Any help is always appreciated!

Thank you,
