I am not sure if this has been answered else where but I have not been able to locate it through my searches on the community page. I have data that is presented in a waterfall effect. The total of all data is at the top of the house and then each subsequent row will contain the building blocks of that total. I am trying to use the multi row formula to compare 2 rows ( active and row +1) to determine which of the 2 rows has a larger number. I think my logic is faulty as it is not returning the correct results. I have provided an example of the excel file data which shows the waterfall and the formua results for the same if logic, and also the logic for the multi row formula. Thanks for your help
I've slightly modified your formula to instead look at the length of the digit, instead of its actual value.
Let me know if this wouldn't work for some other reason not present in this sample data, but otherwise it seems to produce your desired result.
EDIT: But I do agree with the above poster, you'll need to remove trailing and leading whitespace for this to work. You could create a new field which does this using the Formula tool with NewField = [ACCOUNT], and then just strip the white space from NewField, do the computation on that, and drop it afterwards so you still have the waterfall-like effect in your workbook.
