Hi there,

So I have a Table were I am tracking Costs in one field and in another field I have Financial Years.

Financial Year
19/20
Costs
$100

Financial Year
20/21
Costs
$200

What I would like to be able to do create another field where I calculate the growth from 19/20 to 20/21:

Cost Growth
100%

I’m really not sure how to go about this. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Comparing values between records is tricky because you’re dealing with a database, not a spreadsheet, so the records have no intrinsic relationship. This can be done with some clever setup, though, which @W_Vann_Hall outlines here:

Thanks for the recommendation Neil :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks Justin. That’s a three cup of tea read there. I’ll check it out.
