# Converting quarter to months

#### onthegreen03

##### Board Regular
Hi - I want to convert a given quarter to months. So, if in cell A1 I have 'Q1 2021', I want to return 'Jan 2021', 'Feb 2021' and 'Mar 2021' in cells A2 through A4. I know how to convert months to quarter, just can't figure out the reverse. Thanks!

Undo last command with Ctrl+Z or Alt+Backspace. If you use the Undo icon in the QAT, open the drop-down arrow to undo up to 100 steps.
