Dynamic Percentile Analysis Across Multiple Categories - PowerPivot / DAX

Hi everyone!

I've spent a bunch of time trying to find a solution to the following issue! It's driving me currraaazzy!

I would like to be able to dynamically (and hopefully in as simple way as possible) create measures (ideally NOT via calculated columns) in power pivot to be able to carry out percentile analysis (e.g., value associated with top quartile, top quintile, third decile, etc etc) on different subsets of my data (in a pivot table). For example, I might want to create the percentile based on the yearly sales associated with a shop (although the records I have are based on monthly, or another time period).

Could anyone provide any guidance here?

Here is what this data could look like as an example, as well as what the results would be on this data (I did this jammily using excel). I know that there is a way to do this using calculated columns but I want to try and do it using measures (e.g., maybe using a combination of sumx, percentiles, top n??).

Super grateful for any help!
