Populate Q1, Q2, etc with IF function not working

Hi there,

I currently have a formula that is working for Q1 & Q2, but for some reason, it is not working for Q3 & Q4. I am at a loss as to why this is not working properly. Any ideas?

=IF(MONTH([End Training Date]@row) < 4, "Q1", IF(MONTH([End Training Date]@row) < 7, "Q2", IF(MONTH([End Training Date]@row), 10 <"Q3", "Q4")))

Hi Gabby,

I was looking through your formula and it seems that the coma next to the 10 has been misplaced and the < sign as well:

ORIGINAL FORMULA

=IF(MONTH([End Training Date]@row) < 4, "Q1", IF(MONTH([End Training Date]@row) < 7, "Q2", IF(MONTH([End Training Date]@row), 10 <"Q3", "Q4")))

CORRECTED FORMULA

=IF(MONTH([End Training Date]@row) < 4, "Q1", IF(MONTH([End Training Date]@row) < 7, "Q2", IF(MONTH([End Training Date]@row)<10, "Q3", "Q4")))

Let me know if this was helpful
