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.

Hi @Kristofferaabo,

 

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.

@v-piga-msft 

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.
