    I assume Month and Year are in different dimension?

    If so, I would just set up a retrieve that has Year then Period on the rows, and type the members directly into the sheet, with two columns. I.e.:
    2009   Oct
    2009   Nov
    2009   Dec
    2009   Q4
    2010   Jan
    2010   Feb
    2010   Mar
    2010   Q1
    Technically, you don't have to repeat the years - they could just be in the Nov and Jan lines. You can get to the same place by drilling and then selectively removing lines.
