Default Return the current Yearly Quarter based on date

Side Bar** This discussion board is a great resource thanks for the
information.

I am trying to figure out a formula that will return a 1st Quarter, 2nd
Quarter, etc. in to a field based on todays date. Assuming each Quarter began
on the first of Jan, Apr, Jun, and Oct.

So if today was January 3, it would place 1st quarter in the field. If it
was April 12 it would place 2nd quarter in the field, etc.

Thanks!!!

=CHOOSE(ROUNDUP(MONTH(TODAY())/4;0),"1st Quarter", "2nd Quarter","3rd
Quarter","4th Quarter")
