Generate Custom Quarters using date column

Hi,

 

I have a date column that has dates from 01/01/2018 to 30/09/2019. Using this date field by default I can get calendar Quarters.

But my requirement is to generate custom quarters using specific date intervals as below,

 

27 September 2018 to 31 Dec 2018 - Q4-2018

01 Jan 2019 to 4th March 2019       -  Q1-2019

5th March 2019 - 27th June 2019   -  Q2-2019

28th June 2019 - 30th September 2019 - Q3-2019

 

can some one help me in getting the Custom Quarters as above?

 

A quick help would be much appreciated

Re: Generate Custom Quarters using date column

Use a SWITCH statement like:

 

Quarter = 
  SWITCH(
    TRUE(),
    [Date] >= DATE(2018,9,27) && [Date] <= DATE(2018,12,31),"Q4",
    [Date] >= DATE(2019,1,1) && [Date] <= DATE(2019,3,4),"Q1",
    [Date] >= DATE(2019,3,4) && [Date] <= DATE(2019,9,30),"Q2",
    "Q3"
)
