Use this formula:
=MATCH(A2,PERCENTILE(A$2:A$15,{5,4,3,2,1}/5),-1)

Is above code will do below? If not I'm looking for something like below.

case   if cell("A2").value is between  PERCENTILE(A2:A15 , 0 ) and PERCENTILE(A2:A15 , .2 )
       1
case   if cell("A2").value is between PERCENTILE(A2:A15 , .2 ) and PERCENTILE(A2:A15 , .4 )
       2
 case   if cell("A2").value is between PERCENTILE(A2:A15 , .4 ) and PERCENTILE(A2:A15 , .6 )
       3
 case   if cell("A2").value is between PERCENTILE(A2:A15 , .6 )and PERCENTILE(A2:A15 , .8)
       4
 case   if cell("A2").value is between PERCENTILE(A2:A15 , .8 )and PERCENTILE(A2:A15 , 1 )
       5

Try this function:
Public Function CustomQuintile(rngFirstCell As Range, strRange As Range) As Long
    If rngFirstCell.Value >= Application.WorksheetFunction.Percentile(strRange, 0) And rngFirstCell.Value < Application.WorksheetFunction.Percentile(strRange, 0.2) Then
        CustomQuintile = 1
    ElseIf rngFirstCell.Value > Application.WorksheetFunction.Percentile(strRange, 0.2) And rngFirstCell.Value < Application.WorksheetFunction.Percentile(strRange, 0.4) Then
        CustomQuintile = 2
    ElseIf rngFirstCell.Value > Application.WorksheetFunction.Percentile(strRange, 0.4) And rngFirstCell.Value < Application.WorksheetFunction.Percentile(strRange, 0.6) Then
        CustomQuintile = 3
    ElseIf rngFirstCell.Value > Application.WorksheetFunction.Percentile(strRange, 0.6) And rngFirstCell.Value < Application.WorksheetFunction.Percentile(strRange, 0.8) Then
        CustomQuintile = 4
    ElseIf rngFirstCell.Value > Application.WorksheetFunction.Percentile(strRange, 0.8) And rngFirstCell.Value <= Application.WorksheetFunction.Percentile(strRange, 1) Then
        CustomQuintile = 5
    End If
End Function

Open in new window


Then use this formula and drag it down:
=CustomQuintile(A2,$A$2:$A$15)
