    Default how to find fiscalquarter based on the start_date using mysql query


    How to find out the fiscal quarter of the day based on the start_date suppose in my example After writing this query my resultset will be like below

    MIN(START_DATE) AS start_date, MONTH(MIN(start_date)) AS p FROM xyz GROUP BY YEAR(START_DATE)

    start_date p 
    2001-01-01 1
    2002-01-01 1
    2003-01-01 1
    2004-01-01 1
    2005-01-01 1
    2006-01-01 1
    2007-01-01 1
    2013-04-01 4
    2018-02-01 2
    2019-01-01 1

    For each year the minimum value of date and month is shown like above. From this result I should calculate the quarternumber of year i.e whichever the minimum start_date as displayed it has to become as quarter1.Suppose my minimum date for year 2013 is '2013-04-01' then Quarter has to show it as 1 (4,5,6-Q1,7,8,9-Q2,10-11-12-Q3,1,2,3-Q4) and if my minimum start date for the year 2018 is '2018-02-01' then the quarter has to show it like this(2,3,4-Q1,5,6,7-Q2,8,9,10-Q3,11,12,1-Q4)
    Based on this above date now my sample output look like which is attached in below sheet

    Why does it have to be in the MySQL query?

    You could do this with a value mapper step.

    In your query, extract the month number from the date, and then map that value to a quarter.
    If you need this to be field-programmable, then you could use a text file and a stream lookup.
    I'm no expert.
