Version 4 Current Periods

More periods have been made available in Current Periods and the names of these can be changed in the Data Dictionary.

These periods are useful in Inquiry Profiles, especially when used with Accumulations, Calculations and Forms.




For example, if you want to accumulate data from ‘Previous Accounting Period’ then you would:

  • Modify the term Current Acc Period 1 to Previous Accounting Period in the Data Dictionary.
  • Set the appropriate value.




  • Set up an Inquiry Profile to select data on the basis of this field.




  • Use the Inquiry Profile in an Accumulation as hitherto.
