    Getting the previous value within State and Category

    Sash L.


      Attached some sample data and a simple table. I want the table's tooltip to show the previous period's value of the same category, and if possible, the previous period (so in the tooltip should read e.g.: "Previous period (xxxx)'s value: 5.2").

      My issue is to get a calculated field that gives me this info. I could not manage to combine a FIXED with Previous_value (I assume this is what I have to do)? Still a bit lost with these basic tableau functions it seems.



      Any help is appreciated!



      Edit: better sample data
