Quarter Date Format :


Hi Guys,

Many time we need to show Dates in QTR. Format , here is a trick to accomplish that task

Date Required Format
01-Jan-12 Q1-12
01-Apr-12 Q2-12
30-Sep-12 Q3-12
01-Oct-12 Q4-12

For this, i used Custom Format in  conditional formatting , you can see the below table for conditional formula and custom format

Suppose you have Dates in Column B , use below formula and Custom format

Required Conditional Formula Custom Format
1st Qtr =AND(MONTH(B2)>=1,MONTH(B2)<4) “Q1-“YY
2nd Qtr =AND(MONTH(B2)>=4,MONTH(B2)<7) “Q2-“YY
