I would like to seek for advice on how to calculate the previous year YTD (Year to date) balance in profit & loss statement
For example, if I enter May 2009, the YTD value should be a sum up of value from Jan to May.
I have tried the current year YTD could be set in column selection dimension "financial period"
FACT PER( Code = YearFirst(@Per):@Per ) Order By PER.Code Descending
Then, I tried the previous year YTD in another column using
FACT PER( Code = YearFirst(@Per-12):@Per-12 ) Order By PER.Code Descending
But it failed -> Abnormally display three column, while the financial period I enter 200903 in parameter @Per
Would anyone kindly help me on that?
