I found this post and it worked for a 4-digit year but I am trying to use a 2-digit year

Calculating Fiscal Year

This will give you the format 2013-2014, 2014-2015:


It takes MONTH>6, so you could adjust that parameter for fiscal start.

And for FY 2014, FY 2015 etc, you could use this formula:

=IF(MONTH(Created)>6,"FY "&YEAR(Created)+1,"FY "&YEAR(Created))

that formula returned 2015.

I tried using the formula TEXT([DateField],”yy”) and nesting it inside the datefield area. it returns 05 for (1905) instead of 15 for 2015

Is there a way to return in the YY format?

  • "it returns 05 for (1905) instead of 15 for 2015" can you be more clear on this? – Keerthi Jun 2 '15 at 21:16
  • After removing the FY text, the formula returned 1/2/1905 instead of the 1/2/2015 based off of the date field selected when viewing the column in a list. When I nested the formula in this formula: TEXT([DateField],”yy”) it gave me the 2--digit year as requested but it was the year (05) instead of the expected year (15) – Mike G Jun 3 '15 at 13:44


=IF(MONTH(Date)>6,"FY "&RIGHT(YEAR(Date)+1,2),"FY "&TEXT(Date,"yy"))

  • This worked for me. I removed the "FY" and came to the 2-digit year i was looking for. Thank You – Mike G Jun 3 '15 at 13:35
