Median - Roll-up (pivot table) with Medians

Excel has a median formula, but it does NOT support median in Pivot Table or Subtotal. Pivot table and subtotal only has the Average, a.k.a Mean.

The Median is the number in the middle of a set of numbers; that is, half the numbers have values that are greater than the median, and half have values that are less. If there is an even number of numbers in the set, then MEDIAN calculates the average of the two numbers in the middle. For example:

Below is an Employee list table, suppose we want to find out the median employee 'Age' of each 'Department'.

    Besides Median, DigDB's roll up also supports Count of Unique values, MODE, Standard Deviation and a total of 21 statistical functions. This give users far more aggregate power than Pivot table and Subtotal.
