Mahfooj Khan Aug 9, 2016 10:20 AM (in response to Shyamal Patel)I don't know how much this help you. But you can try this. Add summary in your worksheet you can get the info. But initially you'll get for entire graph. For individual you've to select. See the screen shot I've selected 2014.
Just right click and add summary in your worksheet
You can add more marks from summary from drop down.

Alexander Mou Aug 9, 2016 11:55 AM (in response to Mahfooj Khan)You can create calculated field for each of the values. Then put them in a
text box or a table.
percentile(variable, 1) =Max, upper whisker
percentile(variable, 0.75)=3rd quartile
percentile(variable, 0.50)=median
percentile(variable, 0.25)=first quartile
percentile(variable, 0)=Min, lower whisker
Note that the definition of whiskers could be different. Just create a
formula for it.

Shyamal Patel Aug 15, 2016 7:50 AM (in response to Mahfooj Khan)Thanks Mahfooj...i tried this earlier but Summary option only gives me the Count and not showing any of the other index's.
Btw, do you know the math behind Tableau's Box Plot calculations? I think it's different than the traditional box plot calc, am i right?
Will appreciate if you can help me understand the math used by Tableau
