I've tried a number of different approaches for this.  Does anyone know the correct steps for setting up the 4-4-5 week calendar in F&O?  Thanks

    Works like a charm.  The only thing I would note, for others' benefit, is don't try to set the Quarter setting until you have all the periods created.  Then, you have to start at the bottom, with the last period, set all the periods to Quarter 2, up to the 4th period in the year, then set all the periods to Quarter 3, up to the 7th period, then set Quarter 4 up to the 10th period.  Why it works this way, I don't know.  If you try to set from the top down, you'll get an error message saying that Quarter 2, 3, 4 is being set out of sequence.

    Hi Frank,

    1 - Create a new fiscal calendar;

    • Calendar 445
    • Fiscal year name 2022
    • Length of period 1
    • Unit years

    2 -  Create a new fiscal year

    3 -  Set up the first period as opening and the third as closing

    4 - Divide de Period 1 - repeat it until you have all 12 periods

    Update the Month and Quarter column during the dividing
