Is there any way to store previous value of column in SharePoint 2010 in another column .

I'd like to show the old version of column A in column B and if it can be done without SharePoint Designer.

You'll have to make some kind of On Item Update functionality, whether it be a workflow (can be created via SharePoints userinterface) or an eventreceiver (custom code bound to lists via feature activation or console job) to get the current value of A and insert it into B.

Great, can you tell me how can this be done using workflow ? – Iyad Dec 3 '11 at 12:33

I'm afraid, the only way to do it - is to make you own control to display list of items with this field or may be make your own custom field.
