Experts,

I'm converting Payroll data from our old system to a new one. In the old system, when an employee moved to a new state, the State tax was recorded in the new state, but the YTD State Tax balance from the old state was coded as Previous State YTD tax (PRVST). In the new system, I need to map the PRVST to the state that the YTD balance was actually in, so in this case, to ST1MD


Old System                                                                                     Maps To in New System:
DateEnd           EmpID     Tax Code        Curr Tax    YTD Tax      Tax Code
8/31/2015        05961        ST1MD           $500        $3500            MD
9/15/2015        05961        ST1VA             $500        $ 500             VA  
9/15/2015        05961        PRVST                  $0       $3500            MD (How do I associate this $3500 with MD?)

Attached is some example data. There's about 870,000 lines on this table, but I think there are only about 250 PRVST codes

Thanks in advance

Well i have some kind of solution but i am not sure if this what you want.
Take a look at the attached accdb(zipped) -- Access 2013...if you have earlier version tell me to convert it.
I have imported your sheet. and then i have found the entries where previous tax is 0 and the amount of current tax(probably i am wrong about the definitions)
Then i get the entry from the previous state according to the amount and finally i update the data to fill with the previous state---> take a look at table FinalTest....
