A1 contains a date formatted cell as dd/mm/yr, say 01/15/06. What formula, in B1, would convert this date to: Q106?
Formula Converts Date To Quarter & Year



Re: Formula Converts Date To Quarter & Year
How about:
="Q"&INT((MONTH(A1)/4)+1)&""&RIGHT(YEAR(A1),2)

Re: Formula Converts Date To Quarter & Year
rhc,
Or, if you prefer, you can use a custom cell format like below and eliminate the need for a formula.
Quote"Q1" yy

Jim, that gives Q106 even for a date in September...

Works beautifully.
Thanks so much!

True, you would need four formats. Works if you are talking column headers and such but not as well if you just have random dates you want to sort or something. Just thought I'd toss it out there.Jim

Re: Formula Converts Date To Quarter & Year
Hi,
="Q"&LOOKUP(MONTH(A1),{1,4,7,10},{1,2,3,4})&""&TEXT(A1,"yy")

Re: Formula Converts Date To Quarter & Year
Slight problem with the formula.
This one works better:
="Q"&INT((MONTH(A1)1)/3+1)&"  CY"&YEAR(A1)
You can ignore my change for the 'year' part. The part I'm fixing is the Month calculation.

Re: Formula Converts Date To Quarter & Year
I like using roundup() to alleviate the +1/1 stuff:
="Q"&ROUNDUP(MONTH(A1)/3,0)&""&RIGHT(YEAR(A1),2)

My date is in cell D2 and formatted MM/DD/YYYY.
For the result I prefer to have the year displayed first and the quarter following so that it sorts chronologically.
Try this =YEAR(D2)&"Q"&ROUNDUP(MONTH(D2)/3,0)
