# BOXPLOTSPARKLINE

The box plot sparkline has the following options:

Option | Description |

points | A reference that represents the cell range. The range contains all values to be described, such as "A1:A4". |

boxPlotClass | Q1→25% percentile, Q3→5% percentile, IQR→Q3-Q1. |

5ns: whisker ends at minimum and maximum, median, no outliers. | |

7ns: whisker ends at 2% percentile and 98% percentile, hatch marks at 9% percentile and 91% percentile, outliers beyond 2% percentile and 98% percentile. | |

tukey: whisker ends at a value (the minimum of the points between Q1 and Q1 - 1.5*IQR, use the point if it exists or use the minimum) and a value (the maximum of the points between Q3 and Q3 + 1.5 * IQR, use the point if it exists or use the maximum), outliers beyond Q1 - 1.5*IQR and Q3 + 1.5 * IQR, and extreme outliers beyond Q1 - 3 * IQR and Q3 + 3 * IQR. | |

bowley: whisker ends at minimum and maximum, hatch marks at 10% percentile and 90% percentile, no outliers. | |

sigma3: whisker ends at a value (average - 2 * StDev > scaleStart ? average - 2 * StDev : minimum) and a value (average + 2 * StDev < scaleEnd ? average = 2 * StDev : maximum), box at average +/- stdev, outliers beyond average - 2 * StDev and average + 2 * StDev, and extreme outliers beyond average - 3 * StDev and average + 3 * StDev. | |

showAverage | A boolean that represents whether to show the average. This setting is optional. The default value is FALSE. |

scaleStart | A number or reference that represents the minimum boundary of the sparkline, such as 1 or "A6". This setting is optional. The default value is the minimum of all values. |

scaleEnd | A number or reference that represents the maximum boundary of the sparkline, such as 8 or "A7". This setting is optional. The default value is the maximum of all values. |

acceptableStart | A number or reference that represents the start of the acceptable line, such as 3 or "A8". This setting is optional. The default value is None. |

acceptableEnd | A number or reference represents the end of the acceptable line, such as 5 or "A9". This setting is optional. The default value is None. |

colorScheme | A string that represents the color of the sparkline's box. This setting is optional. The default value is "#D2D2D2". |

style | A number or reference that represents the sparkline style. This setting is optional. The default value is 0 (Classical). The style can be 0 or 1. 0: the whisker is a line and outlier is a circle. 1: the whisker is a rectangle and outlier is a line. |

vertical | A boolean that represents whether to display the sparkline vertically. This setting is optional. The default value is FALSE. |
