    Question

    Need some help using date functions to perform quarter calculations. The input is in quarter type format: "Quarter #, YYYY". Based on the input quarter, I need to calculate the previous quarter information.

    Example:

    Based on the input quarter, calculate the previous quarter:
    Input: "Quarter 1, 2001"
    Output: "Quarter 4, 2001"

    or Input: "Quarter 3, 2001"
    out: "Quarter 2, 2001"

    note: fiscal year starts in November. Therefore, Quarter 1 includes months of Nov, Dec, Jan (in different calendar yrs).

    Thanks for your help!

    Correction... the output for the first example should be: "Quarter 4, 2000".
