Hi Billy,

Apologies if I am wrong but, I believe the logic which you have mentioned would start like this -

if current-designation not equal to previous-designation
move previous-designation to designation of next entry in table
move salary-value to salaray of next entry in table

Please let me know if that is not the case.

Thanks & Regards,
Nik

You are entirely correct, the "if" in my post is missing the "not". Thanks for pointing it out, it will save confusion for others reading the topic.
