• Value of Month in Comparison

Enter the number of factors for which you want to calculate the growth. For example, if you want to analyze the change in sales returns, enter the amount of sales return of the period for which you want to evaluate the changes.

• Value of Month Previous than Month in Comparison

This is the base for comparison as you will compare the growth with the previous period. Enter the value of the previous month. Assuming the same example, enter the figure for the sales return of the previous month.
