Divide current row with previous row in Dataiku
Hi I have a question. How does one divide the current row with previous row in Dataiku? For example, let's say I have a column that contains stock prices, and I would like to calculate the change in price by dividing current row with previous row and minusing 1. How does one do that?

Here was how I solved it: I used the "Window" recipe. First, I partitioned by the correct column at which to perform subset operations on. Next, I order column by datetime (if there is one). Finally, I selected "Lag" for the column Price under Aggregations to get the lag. Next, using a "Prepared" recipe and "formula", I divided the current Price column with the newly created "Lag" column to get the change in price as wanted.

The idea is that you would order by some value like a trading day. You might group by some other value like a specific stock. Then you would want the lag value from the earlier day's trading. In a separate step, you would then do your arithmetic to get your percent change. Or you might do this in a custom agrigation.
Hope this helps.

Thank you for your answer. I did manage to solve it
