When logging in to Spire, a message pops stating that the "Date is past end of next fiscal year. Enter a date within the current, previous or next fiscal year."
This means you have not yet done a year end for 'last year'. Spire works with three years: last year, this year and next year. If you are logging in to 2017 and receive this message, then your 'last year' would be 2014.
|Last Year||This Year||Next Year|
Performing a year end will close off 'last year' and advance the year in Spire. The Year End utility is located under Tools > Year End.
