Calculating terms

Hi,

I have a list of pupils with dates of birth. I wish to quickly calculate in which term (semester) they were born. Pupils ages range from 3 to 11. Birth dates and terms as follows:

Sept 1st - Dec 31st incl. - Autumn/Fall
Jan 1st - Apr 30th incl. - Spring
May 1st - Aug 31st incl. - Summer

Any formulae ideas, folks?

Do you hate GETPIVOTDATA?
Prevent GETPIVOTDATA. Select inside a PivotTable. In the Analyze tab of the ribbon, open the dropown next to Options and turn it off

If date of birth is in A1 then this formula will give the relevant term

=LOOKUP(MONTH(A1),{0,5,9;"Spring","Summer","Autumn/Fall"})
