I am assuming you have the report grouped on the item and then have it sorted by date.

In the report header add a formula
WhilePrintingRecords;
Global NumberVar MinDatePrice;
""

Open in new window


In the product group header
WhilePrintingRecords;
Global NumberVar MinDatePrice;
MinDatePrice := {ProductPriceFIeld};
""

Open in new window


In the group footer
WhilePrintingRecords;
Global NumberVar MinDatePrice;
({ProductPriceFIeld} / MinDatePrice) - 1

Open in new window
