Cumulative total day of the month

I am trying to write a measure that calculates the cumulative total by day of month. Most of the measures I've written so far just give me a straight line across. The last one I wrote shows variation but it is not a running total. Any Ideas?

BHC January 2018 Cumulative = 
CALCULATE(
  [BHC January 2018 Cohort],
  FILTER(
      ALL('Data Table'),
      DAY('Data Table'[Date_Applied]) = MAX('Date Table'[DayOfMonth])
  )
)

Re: Cumulative total day of the month

So, have to make a lot of assumptions to answer this. Have no idea what [BHC January 2018 Cohort] is. Assuming it is a measure that does some kind of SUM or something. Please see this post regarding How to Get Your Question Answered Quickly: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/How-to-Get-Your-Question-Answered-Quickly/ba-p/38490

 

But, something like this should do it:

 

BHC January 2018 Cumulative = 
VAR currentday = MAX('Date Table'[DayOfMonth]

RETURN

CALCULATE(
  [BHC January 2018 Cohort],
  FILTER(
      ALL('Data Table'),
      DAY('Data Table'[Date_Applied]) <= currentday  )
)
