Calculating moving difference

Can some one please help me on this? I got 2 records by individual
with some fileds, one associates with the min date and the other one
assocaites with max date. So lay out looks as follows:

Key_ID | Dates_Min_Max Avg_Weight
1234 1/2/2004 12
1234 1/2/2006 24

I need to get the difference change between the weights for individual
ids that is group by Key_ID and find the percent change. Some thing
like this: (MAx_Row - Previos Row)/Previous Row * 100.

How to do this? How do I get the previos row between 2 records if I
order by the date? Any suggestions? Thanks

Whenever you compare values on two rows, you usually have to do a JOIN
to get them both on the same row of the result set, so you can compare
the values.

SELECT ((t2.avg_weight - t1.avg_weight) / t1.avg_weight) * 100
AS pct_difference
FROM tablename AS t1 JOIN tablename AS t2
ON t1.key_id = t2.key_id AND t1.dates_min_ma x < t2.dates_min_ma x;

Firstly, sorry for the long post, but I've included a fair bit of sample data. Im doing a comparision of 10yr Bond prices and CPI adjustments, with an 18 week moving average of the CPI. I'm using a nested sub-query to calculate the moving average, but I'm having difficulty selecting exactly 18 data points (ie When I include the 'HAVING COUNT(C1.Closes) = 18' line, I get no results). Can anyone help?

I've read most, if not all, of the posts on moving average and still can't find a simple solution to my problem (if a simple solution exists!) I have a table with 2 fields: Hours and Injuries.

Is there a simple way of A: using yet another calculated field in the query...

I have a table with two fields, txtvalue (a number field) and txtmonth ( a date/time field).

For example if I have the value 1000 in 30/03/03 and the value 1100 in 30/03/04 How do I calculate the difference as 100 and the increase as 10%. I...
