Opening and closing inventories

Hi all,

I would like to get some advise for the opening and closing.

I have scenario that I develop income statement for monthly, quarterly and yearly. The opening and closing inventories work perfectly when using OPENINGBALANCEMONTH and CLOSINGBALANCEMONTH.

However, when goes to quarterly, it could not work well as it is depending on fiscal period.

For example, my fiscal period from 1 Jun 2019 to 31 May 2020.

  1. My first quarter would be from 1 Jun 2019 to 31 Aug 2019, 2nd quarter would be 1 Sep 2019 to 30 Nov 2020, 3rd quarter would be 1 Dec 2019 to 29 Feb 2020 and last quarter would be 1 Mar 2020 to 31 May 2020.

  2. Inventory balance list
    |Date|Closing Balance|
    |30-06-19| 125,600.00 |
    |31-07-19| 183,000.00 |
    |31-08-19| 110,430.00 |
    |30-09-19| 288,930.00 |
    |31-10-19| 77,834.00 |
    |30-11-19| 109,730.00 |
    |31-12-19| 380,480.00 |
    |31-01-20| 123,678.00 |
    |29-02-20| 118,450.00 |
    |31-03-20| 328,990.00 |
    |30-04-20| 327,930.00 |
    |31-05-20| 334,660.00|

  3. For Q2 which is from 1 Sep 2019 to 30 Nov 2019
    Opening balance = 110,430
    Closing balance = 77,834

Any idea how to incorporate the opening and closing balance of inventories by fiscal year using OPENINGBALANCEQUARTER and CLOSINGBALANCEQUARTER.

Thank you.

Regards,
Dennis
