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

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.
