I would like to setup a excel file that can help me display high level visual schedule for any particular project. I would have my high level tasks in rows and column would represent week number and quarters. my plan sometime goes beyond a single year. what i need to do is following:
Input a year which will populate week number in columns (52 columns)
convert these week number its month depending on particular year
convert a month into quarters for that particular year

so my file should look like following

Hello,

I'm not quite sure what you want to automate. In any year, if the first week starts with 1-Jan,  the quarters each have 13 weeks.

Take a look at the attached. The week numbers and the months are populated by formulas. The core reference is the year in row 1. But no matter what year is entered there, the pattern of quarters, months and weeks does not change.

cheers, teylyn

correction: in leap years, the third quarter is one week longer. See attached with conditional formatting for the quarters and months.
