Use Fractile function:

Fractile(FieldName, 0.25) -> For 1st Quartile

Fractile(FieldName, 0.75) -> For 3rd Quartile

Thanks much for prompt response Sunny.

Actually, FieldName I have is "Sum(Meetings)". If I put like this Fractile(Sum(Meetings), 0.25), its giving me an error saying nested aggregate functions are not allowed.

I tried using master items but no luck.

Moreover, I am trying to identify what is bottom or top quartile of a Meetings field and shade red for bottom and green for top quartiles.

Can you please guide me thru how to achieve this.

HI Kishore,

As Sunny mentioned the fractile() should help you. Also check these out.

You would need a Aggr function between your Fractile and Sum functions:

Fractile(Aggr(Sum(Meetings), AggregatingFieldsHere), 0.25)
