Hi,

Does anybody have a function that returns the last date of a quarter based on a given date.

Input: 1-1-2013 -> Return: 31-3-2013
Input: 15-2-2013 -> Return: 31-3-2013
Input: 7-6-2013 -> Return: 30-6-2013
etc.

You can use this:

function GetLastDayOfQuarter(DT: TDateTime): TDateTime;
begin
  Result := Now();
  if  InRange(MonthOf(DT), 1, 3) then
    Result := EndOfAMonth(YearOf(DT), 3)
  else
  if  InRange(MonthOf(DT), 4, 6) then
    Result := EndOfAMonth(YearOf(DT), 6)
  else
  if  InRange(MonthOf(DT), 7, 9) then
    Result := EndOfAMonth(YearOf(DT), 9)
  else
  if  InRange(MonthOf(DT), 10, 12) then
    Result := EndOfAMonth(YearOf(DT), 12);
end;

This is the test program:

Form:
object Form1: TForm1
  Left = 0
  Top = 0
  Caption = 'Form1'
  ClientHeight = 219
  ClientWidth = 340
  Color = clBtnFace
  Font.Charset = DEFAULT_CHARSET
  Font.Color = clWindowText
  Font.Height = -11
  Font.Name = 'Tahoma'
  Font.Style = []
  OldCreateOrder = False
  OnCreate = FormCreate
  PixelsPerInch = 96
  TextHeight = 13
  object Label1: TLabel
    Left = 104
    Top = 48
    Width = 140
    Height = 33
    Caption = '00/00/0000'
    Font.Charset = DEFAULT_CHARSET
    Font.Color = clWindowText
    Font.Height = -27
    Font.Name = 'Tahoma'
    Font.Style = []
    ParentFont = False
  end
  object DateTimePicker1: TDateTimePicker
    Left = 80
    Top = 128
    Width = 186
    Height = 21
    Date = 41601.925650833340000000
    Time = 41601.925650833340000000
    TabOrder = 0
    OnChange = DateTimePicker1Change
  end
end
