Compendium Cycle Dates

When a compendium report code is selected, all available cycles are displayed for that code.  Cycles refer to the update frequency and/or timeframe of the report, and are usually displayed in a year and month (YY/MM) format.  For example, the cycle screen below shows cycles for May 2006 and April 2006:
