financial date dimension - additional audit periods

    Question

  • I have financial data, which have financial period data. I'd like to implement this period as date dimension, because I would like to use ytd, yoy kpis and others.

    The problem is that I have records with "additional" period - 13th, 14th, 15th (i.e.: 2012013, 2012014). These records are a special operations, which shouldn't be in one bucket with other records (rather I don't want to change it to 2012-12-31).

    How I can accomplished it? Is there any method by which I could have time operations and more than 12 months?

  • You can create Date table with additional columns and set type as "Time" in designer.
