Hi All,

Please can someone help me on the below.

Can a formula be used to pick up the different months in a quarter?

Say I have Q1 in cell A1 and I want cell A2 to pick up the first month of the quarter, A3, the second month of the quarter and cell A4 to pick up the third month of the quarter. If I was to change cell A1 to Q2, or Q3 or Q4 could a formula pick up the the correct months?

I am trying to create a template so this would stop me from having to create separate ones for each quarter.

Here's one way:
1st month
=TEXT(DATE(2000,RIGHT(A1)*3-2,1),"MMM")

2nd month
=TEXT(DATE(2000,RIGHT(A1)*3-1,1),"MMM")

3rd month
=TEXT(DATE(2000,RIGHT(A1)*3,1),"MMM")

<tbody>
</tbody>

Maybe something like this?

=LOOKUP(RIGHT(A1,1),{"1";"2";"3";"4"},{"January";"April";"July";"October"})

Create a table in C1:D12
Enter formula in A2 and copy down to cell A4

=INDEX(D$1:D$12,MATCH(A$1,C$1:C$12,0)+ROWS(A$2:A2)-1)
Change cell A1 to Q1, Q2 Q3 or Q4
