How Do I Sort by Financial Year?

During a recent SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 report writing project, my client wanted the budget vs actuals charts and matrix months sorted by financial year instead of calendar year.


As I prefer to do as much as my manipulation within my SQL statements, rather than in SSRS, I created the following calculated field:

Case When MonthNo >= 4 then MonthNo - 3 else MonthNo + 9 end as FYSort

I can then use this field to control the sort order of the various items of the report
