Note This Change to Fiscal Year Period Variant in AIMS - 12/18/08
In the AIMS pre-service pack upgrade, it was possible to specify the range of dates for the fiscal year period by inserting a hyphen, such as 001/2009-005/2009, and get results within that range.
However, to separate the dates post-service pack upgrade, a space is required on each side of the hyphen, such as 001/2009 - 005/2009, for the system to recognize the date range.
Failure to provide the required spaces may affect users’ variants that were created pre-service pack upgrade. Consequently, to extract accurate data, please be sure to follow the new format when typing the fiscal-year period in the saved variants.
