[CLOSED] Using same value in first sort for 2nd sort and calculate

Hi all,
don't know how to phrase my title or search for this. Here's what I would like to do:
Use the same record count from one value in a sort to calculate results from a percent field that is the actual percent for each sort value. It's basically a lift over control in marketing. Here's an example:

Group # Prospects # Resp %Resp
Dir Mail 10000 1000 10%
Control 5000 50 1%


I want all those fields plus a field that has the direct mail prospects of 10000 for both direct mail and control and the calculate the response using actual % Resp. So additional fields would be:

Group What-If # Resp
Prospects (using actual % resp)
Direct Mail 10000 1000
Control 10000 100

Thought I could figure this out if possible. I've never used FML, so I don't think that's an option if that's the only way.

Thanks all.

Bob Vitali
