Re: Calculating percentile off of a measure

when i define the temporary table with a variable and then pass that variable to the percentile function, it doesnt work. it appears that this approach only works with an iterator function (e.g. sumx, averagex, maxx)

 

For example, this doesnt work:

=VAR
Temp_Table = SUMMARIZE(ABSO_Table,ABSO_Table[Date],ABSO_Table[Sim_Run],"Column_4_Percentile",sum(ABSO_Table[RenewableGeneration]))

return
PERCENTILE.INC(Temp_Table[Column_4_Percentile],.05)

 

it says i need a base table to pass through as an argument to percentile.inc

 

interestingly though , if i use an iterator function, it works. 

No problem with the following:

=VAR
Temp_Table = SUMMARIZE(ABSO_Table,ABSO_Table[Date],ABSO_Table[Sim_Run],"Column_4_Percentile",sum(ABSO_Table[RenewableGeneration]))

return
sumx(Temp_Table,[Column_4_Percentile])

 

thoughts?

Re: Calculating percentile off of a measure

i solved it. there is in fact a percentilex.inc function. cant believed i missed it 

 

here is the solution

 

=VAR
Temp_Table = SUMMARIZE(ABSO_Table,ABSO_Table[Date],ABSO_Table[Sim_Run],"Column_4_Percentile",sumx(ABSO_Table,ABSO_Table[RenewableGeneration]))

return
PERCENTILEX.INC(Temp_Table,[Column_4_Percentile],.05)
