Thanks,

## Re: calling out previous data

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

For example:

A - Blank

B - A

C - B
D - 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.

Thanks again,

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

if #1 then blank

else finditem(numbered list, left(code,2) & text(value-1))    => it works for Code PG01
