Quarter End Date

What is a formula that can be used to find the nearest quarter end,
when the fiscal year has a non-standard start date (ie. November fiscal
year, current date is 2/28/2005, quarter end should be 4/30/05)?

Thanks very much--this is perfeect. Is there a way to generalize for
any given fiscal year start (ie. use 11 for November as an input)?

Quarter End Date

Is there a way to generalize for any fiscal month start using the
following formula:

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

This I find to be best because it can be used to find half-year and
year-end intervals as well.

Do you mean you want the last date of the month for any date you put in A1,
or do you mean something else?

Not really. Trying to write a generalizable formula to find the
nearest month, quarter, half-year, or year-end, but able to accomodate
different fiscal year start dates.

For example, if the Fiscal Year begins in November and today's date is
today, 4/6/06.

Nearest month end: 4/30/06
Nearest quarter end: 4/30/06
Nearest half-year end: 4/30/06
Nearest year-end: 10/31/06

If the fiscal year began in January, then it would be:

Nearest month end: 4/30/06
Nearest quarter end: 6/30/06
Nearest half-year end: 6/30/06
Nearest year-end: 12/31/06
