Percentile 99 and Percentile 01

How do I calculate the Percentile 99 and Percentile 01 in the Access Database? I see that we have the PERCENTILE worksheet function, but it takes an array of a maximum of 8191 data points. My need is to calculate the P99 and P01 for more than 60000 data points.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can list the top N % using the TOP predicate in SQL... So to calculate the top 1% you would use:

  SELECT TOP 1 PERCENT ScoreField FROM MyTable ORDER BY Score;

And to list the bottom 1% you would use:

  SELECT TOP 1 PERCENT ScoreField FROM MyTable ORDER BY Score DESC;

Sorry, those 2 are the wrong way around - include the DESC to get the TOP 1%, exclude the DESC for the bottom 1%
