## Cumulative doesn't give the correct numbers

Hi guys,

I am trying to create my own forecast because it is based on a planning.

To do this I have a few measures and some data to go with it.

Measure to determine the price of the hours in a certain month:

Planning = sumx('Forecast'; 'Forecast'[Hours] * 'Forecast'[PriceFC])

Measure to calculate the cumulative total of the worked hours
CumulativeTotal = CALCULATE(Sum(TimeTransactions[AmountFC]);FILTER(ALL(PowerBI_Calendar[Date]); PowerBI_Calendar[Date] <= Max(PowerBI_Calendar[Date])))

Measure to determine if I need to use the actual worked hours or the planning:
GuideLine = IF(OR(SUMX(TimeTransactions; TimeTransactions[AmountFC]) = BLANK(); SUMX(TimeTransactions; TimeTransactions[AmountFC]) < [Planning]); [Planning]; SUM(TimeTransactions[AmountFC]))

Measure to get the cumulative total of my guideline so it can be shown nicely in a graph:
Cumulative Forecast = CALCULATE([GuideLine];FILTER(ALL(PowerBI_Calendar[Datum]); PowerBI_Calendar[Datum] <= Max(PowerBI_Calendar[Datum])))

The problem lies with the Cumulative forcast, it should be a different number than it is showing.
Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?

@v-kelly-msft  "maand" (or month) is part of the PowerBI_Calendar, it didn't help unfortunatly to add the "Datum" column.

@amitchandakhere is some sample data, it's all data for one project that is also how they are usually connected.

Thanks for the help so far!

Best regards,

What is your cumulative formula? As you are shared data with month, I doubt if the same month has been used. Not the month number or Month Year(YYYYMM) or date . Because in that it might do text sorting for cumulative.

@amitchandakI am not quite sure what you are asking.

But I shared all the measure in the post so I hope you can find what you need there.

I will also add a screenshot of my Calendar Table, maybe that answers some questions.

If it doesn't please let me know.

Hi @Anonymous ,

Drag the column PowerBI_Calendar[Datum] to the table visual to see if it shows correctly?
