Filter dataset using Advanced Function (Decile)

Miguel Roldan shared this question 3 years ago


I want to create a report filtering values from a column which are greater than 90th percentile in that dataset.

I can use Advanced function "Decile" to rank each value of the column assigning a value of 1 to 10 based upon its rank to the highest value, but I can't use this Decile function as filter (filtering values with decile greater than 9, I would achieve my goal, but it's not possible).

Is there any way to do this in Yellowfin?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Miguel,

I think the easiest way to accomplish this would be to include your "Decile" column in the report and then use the powerful Yellowfin feature called "Use as View" (Save Report->Report Settings) which would turn the report into a view, and then of course it would be a simple matter to then create a new report based on that view and just drag the "Decile" column into the filter area.

I hope that helps you meet your reporting requirements!




OK. Thank you
