Hi,

I have attached a file which contains data for which i would like to know where the top 1%, 5% etc of data lies.

The challenge is the data goes across 12 columns but multiple rows. So i have to identify the client type by its number (thats in the rows), then i have to identify the 12 data points by headings (in the columns), although will always be in the same column/row

Then with that block of data, i need to identify where the threshold for the top 1%, 5% etc

Many thanks
Seamus

Hello Seamus,

You can get the threshold for the top 1% with an array formula like this

=PERCENTILE(IF(A8:A16=1,B8:M16),99%)

confirmed with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER

regards, barry
