I have a table with four columns

Code
Value
Rank
RollingValue

I want to update the RollingValue to the Value plus the Value in the previous Rank
Initially all the values in the RollingVale are zero

Code   Value      Rank       RollingValue
ABCD   7            1            0
ABCD   21       2            0
ABCD   10            3            0


Code   Value      Rank       RollingValue
ABCD   7            1            7
ABCD   21       2            28
ABCD   10            3            38

I tried this

         UPDATE TableT
        SET RollingValue = t.Value + p.Value  
        FROM  TableT  t
        INNER JOIN
       ( Select Code, Value, Rank from TableT) AS  p        
        ON t.Code = p.Code
        WHERE (t.Rank = (p.Rank + 1))

declare @TableT TABLE (Code char(4) not null
                      ,Value int not null
                      ,[Rank] int not null
                      ,RollingValue int not null)

insert into @TableT (Code,Value,[Rank],RollingValue) values ('ABCD', 7, 1, 0)
insert into @TableT (Code,Value,[Rank],RollingValue) values ('ABCD', 21, 2, 0)
insert into @TableT (Code,Value,[Rank],RollingValue) values ('ABCD', 10, 3, 0)

update t1
   set t1.RollingValue = (select SUM(t2.Value) 
                            from @TableT t2
                           where t2.[Rank] <= t1.[Rank])
  from @TableT t1

select * from @TableT

Example of how you'll select it:
select t2.Code
     , t2.Value
     , t2.[Rank]
     , SUM(t1.Value) as RollingValue
  from @TableT t1 right outer join @TableT t2
    on t1.[Rank] <= t2.[Rank]
 group by t2.Code
        , t2.Value
        , t2.[Rank]
 order by t2.[Rank]
