    Hi Julieanne,
    a great video. Thanks for it – I never used the relative changes so far – but I will from now on.
    What I think is important and what you did not mention in the video is the fact that the relative changes add up to the absolute changes. This was not completely clear and one could think that these changes are stored somewhere separately.
