why dont you extract the quarters in the load script itself.

it can be done like :

'Q' & CEIL(NUM(MONTH(CALENDAR_DATE))/3) AS CALENDAR_QUARTER,

Hello i already tried this,

But load this into the script only will give me static Quarters(Jan-Marc,Apr-Jun,Jul-Sep,Oct-Dec) i want dynamic quarters like, if i select january into the months the first quarter should be (Jan2020-Nov2019) and before.

hows your Financial year defined?

Does nov 2019 - jan2020 mean Quarter 1 for you?

Not really

Let me me give you an example, the final user select april 2019, so my frist quarter should be (Apr2019-Feb2019) the next quarter(Jan2019-Nov2018) next one (Oct2018-Aug2018) and the last one (Jul2018-May2018) but the final user want to change the selected month to January 2020, so the period should change, the first quarter should be (Jan2020-Nov2019) and etc.

Regards
