    How to return last quarter months?

    Hi - I have the three formulas below that return April, May and June but will change to May, June and July once its August. Is there a way to keep those same three months until the 3rd quarter (September) is over?

    Basically, I need to pull the previous quarter months. So if were in quarter 1 (January-March), I would need quarter 4 (October-December) to be returned.

    Please try at A3:A5

    =TEXT(EDATE(TODAY(),1-MONTH(TODAY())+FLOOR(MONTH(TODAY())-1,3)-ROWS(A3:A$5)),"mmm")

    Re: How to return last quarter months?

    Here is another formula that can be considered (place it in a cell and copy it down for two more cells)...

    =TEXT(87*ROUNDUP(MONTH(TODAY())/3,0)-29*(3-ROWS($1:1)),"mmmm")


    EDIT NOTE
    ----------------------------------------
    For those of you who may be wondering about the underlying structure for the above formula, I discovered many, many, many, many years ago that you could get the month name from the month number using this structure...

    =TEXT(29*MonthNumber,"mmmm")

    Another set of formulas:

    =TEXT((MOD(CEILING(MONTH(TODAY()),3)+6,12)+1)*29,"mmmm")
    =TEXT((MOD(CEILING(MONTH(TODAY()),3)+6,12)+2)*29,"mmmm")
    =TEXT((MOD(CEILING(MONTH(TODAY()),3)+6,12)+3)*29,"mmmm")

    Re: How to return last quarter months?

    If the OP wants to use 3 separate formulas instead of a single formula copied down, what I posted in Message #3 comes out as this...

    =TEXT(87*ROUNDUP(MONTH(TODAY())/3,0)-58,"mmmm")
    =TEXT(87*ROUNDUP(MONTH(TODAY())/3,0)-29,"mmmm")
    =TEXT(87*ROUNDUP(MONTH(TODAY())/3,0),"mmmm")
