## How to get a percentile/quartile when I have a measure with the values to measure and not a table

Hello Everyone,

I want to calculate the percentile or quartile of an item. I used a formula posted in this forum and it works however, I need to modify it since my values are not stored in a table but in a measure.

See below formula :

*In the below example, I need to modify the formula to successfully substitute the column reference of  'Sales'[SalesAmount] withmy measure called [SalesAmount] (Where I have the values stored to help me in the calculation of percentile/quartile)

Quartile =
VAR SelectedUnit =
SUM ( 'Sales'[SalesAmount])
VAR p25 =
PERCENTILEX.INC (
ALLSELECTED ( 'Item'[Item Number] ),
CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Sales'[SalesAmount]) ),
0.25
)
VAR p50 =
PERCENTILEX.INC (
ALLSELECTED ( 'Item'[Item Number] ),
CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Sales'[SalesAmount] ) ),
0.5
)
VAR p75 =
PERCENTILEX.INC (
ALLSELECTED ( 'Item'[Item Number] ),
CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Sales'[SalesAmount]) ),
0.75
)
RETURN
SWITCH (
ISFILTERED('Item'[Item Number]),
SelectedUnit <= p25, "Low",
SelectedUnit > p25
&& SelectedUnit <= p50, "Mid",
"High"
)

Hi @idaly ,

You can try to use SUMX funtion to replace SUM function in your formula as below. Here, measure is  your measure called [SalesAmount] .

``SUMX('Sales','Sales'[Measure] )``
