Using Peek

Question for using peek.

My data is already sorted by date, latest date is at the bottom.

I am trying to load an equation with peek().

(latest wip - (next to last wip - latest processed))

Here is what I have in my script and is coming up with different values.

(WIP - ((Peek(WIP,-1)) - Processed)) as WIP_Test

any tips or other methods?

Edit*

also tried Previous()

(WIP - ((Previous(WIP)) - Processed)) as WIP_Test

That doesn't work either.

Hello Joshua,

If you are using this in your inline script, then below might help.

(Peek('WIP') - ((Previous(WIP,-1)) - Processed)) as WIP_Test
