MySQL Case Study - 138

I have a semi-large table (2000-3000 records and growing) in which I have stored a decimal for each row. This number is an *absolute* rating score for the record. I'd like to derive from this a *relative* rating for each record from .5-10, in .5 increments.

So I need to calculate which PERCENTILE each record is in, and assign the relative score accordingly.

For instance, if a record has a score of 1234.5, and I find that it's in the 65th percentile (65% of records have absolute scores <= 1234.5), then I would assign it a relative score of 6.5.

My question is, how do I figure the percentile score for each record?

MySQL Case Study - 137

What I am trying to do is write a query that for each personel_id will return the sum of their highest 10 nuemerical values.

Its easy to get the sum of all of them, but Im stumbling on getting only the top 10.

(a simple example is:

select personel_id, sum(sale_value) from my_table group by personel_id

but I want sum(sale_value) to only return the top 10 values summed.

I think I'm just hitting a bit of a mental block, as it doesn't seem that hard to me.

Automatic and Manual Calculation bug in Excel

1) If you switch between Automatic and Manual, all open workbooks are "set" to that mode and will be saved accordingly.

2) The first workbook opened sets the Calculation mode for all subsequent workbooks. This means if the first workbook is set to Manual Calculation, all other workbooks opened later on will set to Manual by default.

3) A co-worker opens a workbook set in Manual Calculation or you email a workbook in that was saved Manual Calculation. This can cause problems because the user may fall into the same trap as above.

The Moral of the story - It may be dangerous to accidentally find new excel bugs. Don't forget you can always check by going to Tools, Options, Calculation - Automatic if necessary.

There is an add-in that will warn you if you are saving a file in Manual Calculation Mode. It's available here...
