CA Forum: Formula

I am writing a report that will compare monthly sales. Example Jan 06 to Jan07 . I have fields called This year sales for period 1, This year sales for period 2 etc. I also have fields called last year sales for period 1, Last year sales for period 2, etc. I want all Twelve months on the same report. I assume I must write a formula that when I want to compare the sales for the individual months for the whole year of 07 then it will print the this year sales for period 1-12 and last year sales for period 1-12 but like the example below:

Jan 06 feb06 march 06 etc

2,000 3,000 4,000

Jan07 Feb 07 March 07

4,000 2,000 3,000

I am doing this in excel I have one row for the 1st year jan 06-dec 06. Then on the second row jan 0-dec 07. If necessary I guess I could do :

Jan 06 jan07 then I will have a formula that will figure out the percentage difference in sales. Hope this is clear. Thanks for any Help In Advance.
