Compare two adjacent records in a chart


I am generating the below chart and I would like to be able to campare any two adjacent values in it

I thought of using the ERLEIER function that would give me the value of the point before the current one.

The way I see it, it would give me something like this.
Previous Val = CALCULATE([Value]);FILTER(MyTable; EARLIER(MyTable[Batch_number])<MyTable[Batch_number]))
The problem is that MyTable[Batch_number] is a string variable and the smaller operator (<) doesn't seem to be working.
An idea on how I can atcheave my goeal ?
Thanks for the help

Hi @Anonymous ,

Measure = 
var _curr = MyTable[Batch_number]
var _calc = CALCULATE(MAX(MyTable[Batch_number]),MyTable[Batch_number]<curr)
return _calc

It will be something like this, but not exactly because you did not provide enough info. Your column names would at least be helpful. However maybe this will give you the idea.
Let me know if you have any questions.

If this solves your issues, please mark it as the solution, so that others can find it easily. Kudos are nice too.
