First and Last Day of the Quarter

I am looking for two formulas that would return the first and last day of the
quarter based on any given date. Assuming the given date is 2/14/03, I would
like to return the following in separate cells:

1/1/2003
3/31/2003

Thanks!

First and Last Day of the Quarter

If your date is in A1 this formula gives the first day of the quarter

=DATE(YEAR(A1),FLOOR(MONTH(A1)-1,3),1)

and this the last day

=DATE(YEAR(A1),CEILING(MONTH(A1),3)+1,0)

Nice use of FLOOR and CEILING but I think the first formula should be

=DATE(YEAR(A1),FLOOR(MONTH(A1)-1,3)+1,1)

First and Last Day of the Quarter

Thank you so much! I was not even aware of the Floor and Ceiling functions.

May I ask one more favor? I would like to fill the neighboring cells with
the next quarter. Again using the date 2/14/03 and your formulas already
provided, I am looking for the following:

1/1/2003 4/1/2003 7/1/2003 etc.
3/31/2003 6/30/2003 9/30/2003 etc.

Thanks again.

Use the built in logic of the formulas

=DATE(YEAR(A1),FLOOR(MONTH(A1)-1,3)+4,1)

=DATE(YEAR(A1),FLOOR(MONTH(A1)-1,3)+7,1)

and so on for second and third

=DATE(YEAR(A1),CEILING(MONTH(A1),3)+4,0)

=DATE(YEAR(A1),CEILING(MONTH(A1),3)+7,0)

and so on
