The data I have looks similar to this:

Order OE-IP(x) Order IP - SHP(y) Order SHP - POD(z) Total orders(T)

5 ----------------------------- 2 -------------------------- 3 ------------------- 110

3 ----------------------------- 1 -------------------------- 7------------------- 2000

0 ----------------------------- 5 -------------------------- 4 ------------------- 200

There are about 800k lines of data like this so I won't post that up.

How would I use JMP to get the percentiles they are looking for?

For the weighted average I did

[(x+y+z)*T]=C for each line

(Sum of column C / Sum of column T) = Weighted Average

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here is how you calculate percentiles in SQL:

Suppose you have _Table_ that contains several groups with [Group_ID] of the values

------ 5th percentile --------

SELECT MAX (

FROM (SELECT top 5 percent

FROM _Table_

ORDER BY

GROUP BY [Group_ID]

-------- 95th percentile -------

SELECT MAX (

FROM (SELECT top 5 percent

FROM _Table_

ORDER BY

GROUP BY [Group_ID]

If you still want to use Jmp, then go to Analyze ->"Fit Y by X', choose

This can be easily found in Jmp help, btw...

Thanks,

MikeK.

-------- 95th percentile -------

SELECT MIN (

FROM (SELECT top 5 percent

FROM _Table_

ORDER BY

GROUP BY [Group_ID]
