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 use the PERCENTILE function instead. You can use PERCENTILE(array,.2), PERCENTILE(array,.4), etc.

In which case they are quintiles (if that's what they're called), not quartiles.
