Default Wanting to call excel function for quartile in acc

I thank you in advance for your time and expertise. I am working on a project for a non-profit and am hoping to get some help in getting the quartile function that is in Excel and use it in Access. I have played with getting other functions working from excel, but when I try to use any formula that requires an array, I can't get it working.Unfortunately they have Access 2000 and I am not a very experienced programmer. I have one data_table, the field is data. I found this code on the web, but can't get it working. I keep getting an error "cannot find worksheet function". I added the reference to excel through tools, but still nothing.

Thank you for any help, advice or good thoughts.

Public Function Percentile(strTbl As String, strFld As String, k As Double)
As Double
Dim rst As ADODB.Recordset
Dim dblData( ) As Double

Dim xl As Object
Dim x As Integer
Set xl = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
Set rst = New ADODB.Recordset
rst.Open "Select * from " & strTbl, CurrentProject.Connection,
ReDim dblData(rst.RecordCount - 1)
For x = 0 To (rst.RecordCount - 1)
dblData(x) = rst(strFld)
Next x
Percentile = xl.WorksheetFunction.Percentile(dblData, k)
Set rst = Nothing
Set xl = Nothing
End Function

Private Sub cmdPercentile_Click( )
Dim dblPercentile As Double
dblPercentile = Percentile("tblData", "SampleData", txtK)
MsgBox "Percentile = " & dblPercentile, vbInformation, "Percentile"
End Sub

   The code you are using seems kind of strange. I am surprised that you are only getting one error since the syntax indicates you would be getting many more.

   Can you find the math for the operation you wish to carry out, and then just put that in your code? Use a module and call it when needed, that way you can reuse the code.
