Dear Experts,

I want to be able to produce a calculated field in a table which will show the quarter in which an invoice is raised.  The date the invoice is raised comes from [Invoice Date].

I can see how to split it into months, years etc. but not by quarter

Can anybody help?

There is no need to store the value.  Add a calculated field to your query using the Format() function.

Select ..., Format(YourDate, "yyyy-q") as InvQtr
From YourTable;

Look up the Format function to see all the options.  The expression above will return 2013-4 for today's date.
