When using this in FIND MODE, the parameters "FirstDayWeek" and "FiscalMonth" probably need to be stored or moved into GLOBAL FIELDS prior to entering find mode.

You can also parse the start and end date results into separate fields to filter portals.

cStartDate = (Calculation, Date Result) = LeftWords(QBResult, 1)

cEndDate = (Calculation, Date Result) = RightWords(QBResult, 1)
