If A1 = Any date, I need a formula for A2 with conditions like

If A1 between 01 Jan 2009 to 31 Mar 2009 then A2 = Q1
If A1 between 01 Apr 2009 to 30 Jun 2009 then A2 = Q2
If A1 between 01 Jul 2009 to 30 Sep 2009 then A2 = Q3
If A1 between 01 Oct 2009 to 31 Dec 2009 then A2 = Q4

Try

=INT((MONTH(A1)-1)/3)+1

I forgot the Q

="Q"&INT((MONTH(A1)-1)/3)+1

Right, like Mike H said...

="Q"&INT((MONTH(A1)-1)/3)+1

I like this formula in general--if the fiscal year starts on the first of month
number #:
="FY"&YEAR(A1)-(MONTH(A1)<#)&"-Q"&INT(1+MOD(MONTH(A1)-#,12)/3)

So if the fiscal year starts on April 1st, then I'd use:
="FY"&YEAR(A1)-(MONTH(A1)<4)&"-Q"&INT(1+MOD(MONTH(A1)-4,12)/3)

I also like this style of result:
FY2009-Q1
