Hello. Try this code. Replace @a with your table name.

declare @b table
id int,
newcode int

declare @prev int

insert into @b(id,newcode) select  id,code from @a
 order by id desc

 set @prev = 0

 update @b
 set @prev=ISNULL(newcode,@prev),
  from @b

 from @a a inner join @b b on =

Somehow came to this blog.

My problem was difference like calculate Open, +, -, Close.

By joining with LEFT JOIN, got current row & previous row, then calculated with setting first into variables and then updating physical records.

This solved my problem!

Even "LAG" and "Recursive query with CTE" failed.

But this worked for me!.
Does this work?
SELECT a.Id, a.Name, a.Code, (
    SELECT SUM(b.Code)
        FROM [table] b
           WHERE b.Id <= a.Id
     FROM [table] a
       ORDER BY a.Id

Thanks for the reply, but it will not fulfill the requirement. This only gives the SUM from least to upper.
I need to overwrite null values from last existing value.
Select  Id
      , Name
      , Code
      , (Select Case When a.code <> 0 Then A.Code Else Sum(b.Code) End
        From TableName as b
        Where b.Id < a.Id) AS Code1 
        From TableName As a
