This paper discusses how to handle non-standard calendars such as the Federal Fiscal Year.

The Federal Fiscal Year starts October 1 and runs through September 30. For example, FFY2011 is October 1, 2010 through September 30, 2011. This date offset unfortunately does not conform with any of the typical formats provided with Base SAS. This paper acquaints the reader with tips, tricks, and SAS functions that can be used to better accommodate the Federal Fiscal Year as well as other non-standard calendars.
