Please note all other references are already structured.
In this image see the B1 and C1 references in this structured table?
How do I use structured references to B1 and C1?
This is a problem because B1 and C1 are in the Headers row and not inside the table itself.



I have seen this:
TableName[[#Headers],[ColumnHeaderName]]TableName[[#Headers],[ColumnHeaderName]]
but not managed to make that work yet.When I apply that idea it then replicates in to the whole column and the results are wrong, see here:

 whereas I need the comparison to be only to "the row above" - like ROW()-1 type of thing. Or of course to avoid the comparison if it is outside the table range.
