    This works great for time periods that are "Calendar" time periods.  How do we adjust this for fiscal years with a different start date, i.e. September 1 to August 31 of following year?  (Playing with the #|Timedef:....,Offset:-8|# or even #|Timedef:......,Offset:4|# offers only a partial solution.
