    Unanswered: Auto Populate from another record

    Hi guys
    Question about a database I am building to impress my boss
    Access is 2013/2016

    I have a table with the following fields with example filling
    [date] (which the table is sorted on)
    [vehicle] (containing A, B, C, D etc)
    [mileage] (containing 1, 2, 3, 4 etc)
    Now I want to add another field [previous mileage].
    You can already guess it, I would like to automatically populate this with the [mileage] from the previous record of that same vehicle.
    Simple question, but have no idea of a solution.....
    Any ideas???
    Thanks!
