How to call out previous data from numbered list similar to previous if time bounded? Please see attached reference file.
Yes it is possible if you have sequence of code values in your numbered list.
for eg: #1 has a code 001 or PG01 (number or ALPHA Numeric)
#2 has a code 002 or PG02
#3 has a code 003 or PG03
These have sequence of code.
So in this case
Create a line item and use value function to convert to number
for example: #1 has a code 001
Code will always be text so i am converting to number value(code)
Eg: #1 has code PG01
use right function to get the number position
right(code, 2) => output will be 01
Convert to number value(right)
Finally write a condition stating
if #1 then blank
else finditem(numbered list, text(value-1)) => it works for Code 001
else finditem(numbered list, left(code,2) & text(value-1)) => it works for Code PG01
If you want to get the previous value of non time modules then there is only one way of doing so which is mapping module
Create a module dimensioned by the list and insert one line item formatted as the same list and then do the mapping. Mapping should be done in such a way that Second item gets mapped to first item
A - Blank
B - A
C - BD - C
Once you are done with the mapping then you can use Lookup in your formula to get the previous value of the same list
Hope this helps
Is there a way i can have it calculated instead of manual mapping. I did the manual mapping and it works fine. but i am finding a way for me not to do the mapping manually.
