This tutorial will demonstrate how to calculate the quarter from a date, including how to calculate the current quarter.

To calculate the quarter from a date, first we want to get the month number:
Next we want to divide the month number by 3 (each quarter has 3 months) and use the ROUNDUP Function to round the result up to the nearest whole integer:
Next, we can concatenate text to the front of the result to say Q1, Q2, Q3, or Q4:
or “Quarter 1”, “Quarter 2”, etc.
