# Need a formula to output the quarter that a project starts in

Options

Hello...I have a Master Project Sheet that houses all of my projects. I want to create a column that will look at the start date of the project and determine which quarter of the fiscal year it starts in. So it will output Qtr 1, Qtr 2, Qtr 3, or Qtr 4. Can someone help me with this? Btw, my dates are not hard entered. They are links coming in from the project schedule sheet.

Solved it.

Here is my solution:

=IF(AND(MONTH([Construction Start]@row) <= 9, MONTH([Construction Start]@row) >= 7), "Qtr 1", IF(AND(MONTH([Construction Start]@row) <= 12, MONTH([Construction Start]@row) >= 10), "Qtr 2", IF(AND(MONTH([Construction Start]@row) <= 3, MONTH([Construction Start]@row) >= 1), "Qtr 3", IF(AND(MONTH([Construction Start]@row) <= 6, MONTH([Construction Start]@row) >= 4), "Qtr 4", ""))))

Hi,

Could you please inform if there's a similar formula to work with column date format?

I tried this but my Start date column are in date format, so return error of invalid data type.
