Testcase to check if the period sorting is the same in all dropdowns where year-month numeric is used.
select t.name as tablename,tab.name as tabname,w.name as windowname, ad_reference_value_id, c.* from ad_column c join ad_table t ON t.ad_table_id = c.ad_table_id join ad_tab tab on tab.ad_table_id = t.ad_table_id join ad_window w on w.ad_window_id = tab.ad_window_id left join AD_Reference r ON r.AD_Reference_ID=c.ad_reference_value_id where c.AD_Element_ID=206 and c.isactive='Y'
select p.name,ad_reference_value_id, pp.* from ad_process_para pp join ad_process p ON p.ad_process_id = pp.ad_process_id left join AD_Reference r ON r.AD_Reference_ID=pp.ad_reference_value_id where AD_Element_ID=206 and p.isactive='Y'
=> AD_Element_ID=206 = period sorting is used! => the query will also give the specific tab / subtab of the window where period sorting is used
Open all the windows, one after one
In the respective window (or tab), search for period
Open all reports, one after one
Check the filter for period
If there is a filter for year, set that (e.g. 2015)
Check the filter for period again
Note: for some reports / windows, you can only search for the periods of existing data!
Also note: you can have different calendars for the same year (e.g. for accounting), so you will be able to select the year for each calendar!
If there are different calendars for the same year, you can select the periods for each one:
