Question:

Since there is not an event day in CA FAQS PCS for quarterly. How would I go about
setting up an event for quarterly processing, without creating 4 separate events?

Answer:

Set up a CYCLE with the 4 dates needed.
The dates can be the first or last day of the quarter.

From the PCS main menu select: O Configuration Options
Followed by: F Define Holidays and Cycles
From this menu, select: C Cycle Definition List by IDs
Select PF4 ADD
Choose a new3 digit numeric ID and press enter.

This example uses Jan 3, April 1, July 1 and October 1 as static cycle end dates
  ** in the year means run every year.

 Cycle Id ===> 004     Desc ===> Quarter End Dates      
    Date range for cycle period                         
     YY/MM/DD           YY/MM/DD                        
??????????????????????????????????? ??????????????      
(01) **/01/03   <===>   **/01/03                        
(02) **/04/01   <===>   **/04/01                        
(03) **/07/01   <===>   **/07/01                        
(04) **/10/01   <===>   **/10/01 

Define an event that will only run on these dates

Then define 1 event that uses this cycle
