```Hi malay_ko!

We can use an easily adaptable formula:

=CHOOSE(MONTH(A1),1,1,1,2,2,2,3,3,3,4,4,4)

It should be clear that all you need to do is assign arguments 1,2,3 and 4
to all of the months in turn. At present the formula puts Jan, Feb. Mar into
Q1, Apr, May, Jun in Q2 etc.

So if you want Q1 to start in Oct use:

=CHOOSE(MONTH(A1),4,4,4,1,1,1,2,2,2,3,3,3)

Payables Future Dated Invoices
We have a client who needs to date an invoice in the future, but pay it now. For example the rent invoice is dated 8/1, but they must create a check for it now. Is there something we can setup in Payment Terms so that the invoice will come up in Select Checks to be paid? Version is 10, SP1. Thank you. When executing your check run, enter a due date cutoff of invoice date plus the number of days due on the payment term. For example, if the invoice date is 8/1 and the due date is 9/1 then you should enter a cutoff date of 9/1. The downside is that this may show additional documents th...

disallow cheque date to differ from invoice document date
This suggestion came from one of our clients. They are very upset that the system allow a cheque/cash payment (in AP) or cheque/cash receipt (in AR) to have a different date from the date on the invoice that the on-the-fly cheque/cash is attached to. The product suggestion is to force the cheque/cash payment/receipt date to be the same as the invoice date (which is the same as the GL posting date in this case), or at least create a setup option to either allow or disallow different cheque/cash date from the invoice. The scenarios was that the client has entered many AR invoices da...
