How can I create a Beast Mode field which is a variable figure?

Options

Is it possible to create a Beast Mode field which is a variable figure changing month by month without using SQL data transformation? because I am not very good at SQL manipulation, still in learning but need time.

the field is ' top 5 provinces total parcel quantity % ' , which is the SUM (of top 5 provinces for the parcel quantity) to be divided by the total parcel quantity.

raw data is based on parcel. one express number, one row.

I tired beast mode and seems it can not achieve this goal. Is there any other way at the moment which is easy to me? thanks,

    You could use the group by tile in MagicETL to create a new column for the most recent completed month (or last 30 days, or whatever period you want to use). Basically you would use the rank/window function to identify the top 5, then calculate their total in the period as a column, calculate the total for the entire period, and then use the Formula tile to divide those 2 columns to generate your % column. You can then use this column inside of Analyzer or in a Beast Mode.
