    Which version of BO you are using? and What is your data source?

    Because you have a requirement to display data for current month you will have to add at least one new restricted key figure to BEx query that you plan to use for report. Restricted key figure should use BEx SAP exist variable that limits data to current month. It might require that you will need to enable one or two BI Content variables that SAP provides with SAP BW installation. There are at least two types of current month variables - current fiscal month or current calendar month. Another possibility for restricted key figure is to use your own BEx exit variable


    Afterwards you have few options;

    - develop crosstab report to display pY-1, pY-2 data;

    - add two more restricted key figures to BEx query to display pY-1 and pY-2 columns; this will require you to add new BEx input variable to BEx query

    - create WEBI measure variables to display pY-1 and pY-2 columns based on WEBI prompt
