## Cumulative sum for a line chart

Hi,

I have a set of data with a a column of meeting dates each for a 'sale', I would like to make a chart visualizing this sale growing over time. (cumulative sum??)

Y axis total sale (count of the sale=, X axis meeting date

Please find a screenshot of my dataset

Thanks

Kristoffer

Try the "Running Total" Quick Measure and total it over date.

You could create the measure below to get the cumulative sum of the sales.

```total =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( table5[count of sales] ),
FILTER (
ALL ( table5 ),
'table5'[Meeting date] <= MAX ( 'table5'[Meeting date] )
)
)```

Then you will get your excepted line chart.

Would it be possible to add a grouping condition to that. Say I have a column category, then I would like the cummulative sum to be at a category level.
