Returns the k-th percentile of values in a range, where k is in the range 0..1, exclusive.

Sample Usage



The PERCENTILE.EXC function syntax has the following arguments:

  • Array     Required. The array or range of data that defines relative standing.

  • K     Required. The percentile value in the range 0..1, exclusive.


  • If array is empty, PERCENTILE.EXC returns the #NUM! error value

  • If k is nonnumeric, PERCENTILE.EXC returns the #VALUE! error value.

  • If k is ≤ 0 or if k ≥ 1, PERCENTILE.EXC returns the #NUM! error value.

  • If k is not a multiple of 1/(n - 1), PERCENTILE.EXC interpolates to determine the value at the k-th percentile.

  • PERCENTILE.EXC will interpolate when the value for the specified percentile lies between two values in the array. If it cannot interpolate for the percentile, k specified, Excel will return #NUM! error.
