Hello gurus,

We have a requirement to calculate YTD returns by using the numeric equivalent of closing fiscal period for eg jan would be 1, feb would be 2 etc.

What's the easiest way to do this? Appreciate your help.

Thank you for the response Ashish.

The source infoobjects of Time dimension that we have are fiscal year/period (of the format 002.2005,003.2005 etc)and posting period (of the format 1,2,3,etc)Both of these require user inputs.

Our requirement is to get the numeric equivalent of the closing period that the user enters.

I am not sure how to do it with our info-objects.

Would appreciate your help.
