I have met with a new requirement, which I need to get the input value from an input box, calculate the value of first row, then take the first row value as input to the second row calculation in expression, and third row need to calculated based on the value generated in second row and so on....

Need to calculate Jan sales value on user input, Jan Sales value is input for Feb Sales value, Feb value to Mar Sales value.

I have an input box, which getting data from users.   Eg: if user input is 10%, then calculate Jan sales value to 90% of the actual sales.

Need to take the value generated for Jan Sales as the input and calculate the Sales value for Feb.

Feb Sales value as input to the Mar Sales Value calculation.

and so on... up to December Sales.
