Find the median of a column or group.

### Usage

###### Median(<numbers>)

numbers (required) The column of numbers to be evaluated.

NOTE: If there is an even number of values, Median will interpolate between the middle values.

### Examples

###### Median([Temperature])
• Find the median temperature value. If the column values were 3, 5, 7 and 20 the result would be 6.

Aggregate functions are special functions which summarize columns from lower levels. Aggregate functions can be used on on Grouped levels or in a Total column. For example, they can be used to Sum all of the values of a column, or Count all of the values for each grouping of a column. As such, aggregates must always refer to columns in a level lower than the result.

If the column being aggregated is grouped, then the aggregate is computed for each group. For example, if the worksheet is grouped by the column [Year], then placing Sum([Revenue]) on the [Year] level computes the revenue for each year.

The results of aggregate functions can be referenced by lower levels. An example would be to create a Sum([Amount]) column as Total and then an [Amount] / [Total] column as Percentage. This converts each Amount value into a relative percentage value.
