Hi,

I want my report to fetch data from Financial year starting to till date.

i.e Apr 2013 to till date.

till date means Today() minus 8 days and @Fromdate includes last week of march also

i.e Mar 29 2013 to Apr 4 2013 - this week data will also be included

So data from Mar 29 2013 - Apr 4 2013 to today() minus 8 days need to be displayed

How to fetch data for this.

Pls advise.The column corresponding to this looks like "2013-11-01 ~~ 2013 - 11- 07"

I kept @odate as today() - 8days

and @Fromdate as "= Iif(Month(today())>04, "04/01/"&Year(Today()),Iif(Month(today())<= 04, "04/01/"&(Year(Today())-1),1))"


i wrote this query to fetch from april of last year.

i.e if i run today (year is 2014).It should automatically fetch from last year (april 2013)

i don't know how to proceed to for weekwise

With reporting requirements of this type, it's standard to use a Date Dimension.
This makes your code much less complex - and therefore more maintainable, it's orders of magnitude easier when reporting periods change (or even just the format of a reporting period description), you run one update against the values in the column rather than have to track down and update te complicated bits of code scattered through your codebase. It's also more efficient as you're simply adding a join rather than doing expensive calculations

If you're using a normal database and not an SSAS cube, then you can use a Calendar table. Here's the article on it: http://www.sqlservercentral.com/articles/T-SQL/70482/

Basically, the Calendar table has a series of dates, and a bunch of other derived columns (hey, they're static data you can filter on!) you just join from your table to the date key in the Calendar table and then away you go!

"It Depends". I find that some simple formulas are, many times, much faster, shorter, and easier to write than using Calendar Tables.

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

My company does not use Date Dimension or Calendar tables, our solution to this kind of thing is similar to aar.mba.
