Adding Years to the Calendar

You can add years to the beginning or end of the calendar, but you can't reduce the number of calendar years without creating a database.

To add years to the calendar:

  1. Click the Navigator icon Navigator icon, and then under Create and Manage, click Dimensions.
  2. For Dimension, select Years.
  3. Click Add Years icon.
  4. In Add Years, enter the number of years to add to the calendar.
  5. Click OK.

    The confirmation dialog asks you to confirm the following:

    Add years to end of calendar confirmation

    • To add years after the End year, click Yes.

    • To add years before the Start year, click No.


To add an All Years parent member that includes all members of the Years dimension, click Add All Years icon. The All Years parent member enables users to view the accumulated data across multiple years, for example, a project's total cost up to its end date. (This parent member doesn't include the No Year member, if one exists.)
