Supposing there is a table as below screenshot shown. I will take this table as an example to create a pivot table and group dates by fiscal year within it easily in Excel.

1. Beside the source data, insert a new column, type Fiscal Year as column name, next type the formula =YEAR(A2)+(MONTH(A2)>="7") into the first cell of the new column, and finally drag the AutoFill Handle down to fill the whole column. See screenshot:
doc excel pivot table group by fiscal year 00
Note: In the formula =YEAR(A2)+(MONTH(A2)>="7"), A2 is the first date in the Date column, 7 means the fiscal year begins in July. You can change them as you need.

2. Select the new source data, and click Insert > PivotTable.

3. In the Create PivotTable dialog box, please select a destination range to place the pivot table, and click the OK button. See screenshot:

4. Now in the PivotTable Fields pane, please drag and drop the Fiscal Year field to the Rows section, and then drag other fields to proper sections as you need. See screenshot:

Now you will see the pivot table is created, and the dates are grouped by the fiscal year. See screenshot:

    Hi there, I think the formula should be =YEAR(C8)+(MONTH(C8)>=7) not"7". Because I tried and failed. Just FYI:) Thanks for your work

    Hi, there appears to be an error in the formula above. For me, in Excel 365, =MONTH(A2)>="7" always evaluates to FALSE unless I remove the quotes.
