Defining Fiscal Months RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Everyone,

    Has Microsoft created a way to define fiscal accounting months in Project 2010 Pro or 2013 Standard yet?  My company is on a 4-4-5 fiscal accounting month and need reports to pull data by accounting months.  I've been pulling the data to Excel and working it there but I'd surely like to use MSProject. 

    I have the option of using MSProject 2010 Professional or Project 2013 Standard. 

    I realize that Server/Online does have that feature but unfortunately I don't have access to those.

    Thank you so much!!!!

  • Sandy,

    Sorry no. We had the same issue when I first starting using Project years ago so I developed a macro that took Project data and exported it to Excel in 4-4-5 format, or a modified version thereof. Sadly, Microsoft never saw the need to add an accounting month capability to the base product (Project).

    Hope this helps.

  • Same as John, but I often prefer to save data to SQL Server for reporting purposes using VBA. SQL Server can then report on any period you like, including 4-4-5 (using a Dates table to define which day belongs to which week/period).

    I then often use Excel to report on data from SQL Server. Its a great combination.
