Just use a Multi-Row Formula,  where Prior (possibly a new column being created in the tool) is simply:

 

[Row-1:current]

Thanks!!

day 2 ??1

 

How do I populate 1 from prior to curr column ??

Hmmm OK, if you want to populate Day 2 Current from Day 2 Prior then a Formula Tool after the Multi-Row would do that.

Can you provide a XLS of what you're starting with and what you want at the end ?

 

Or a workflow of what you have so far ?
