## How to find percent change between two years

Hi,

You can use below expression for all the three columns.

CY = SUM({\$<paymentYear={"\$(=Max(paymentYear))"}>} salesAmount)

PY = SUM({\$<paymentYear={"\$(=Max(paymentYear)-1)"}>} salesAmount)

%Change = (CY-PY)/PY

CY=Current Year, PY=Previous Year

Hope this helps.

Please revert back for any further query.

Cheers,
