> A user reported that when running a query with {{PERCENTILE_CONT}} where the selection
has no results (e.g. nothing to compute the P_C on), a NullPointerException is thrown.
> Glancing at the code, it can handle the case where there is only one value, but handling
the case where there are no values fails.
> Reading over Oracle and SqlServer docs, it doesn't saw what "should" happen in these
cases. Is "0" a sane value? Or is an exception actually a good idea?
