Cumulative total of a measure

Hi everyone,

 

I am struggling to identify a solution to a common problem resolved in the forums. Out of ignorance I have blindly attempted multiple suggestions but I have not been successful.

 

I have 2 measures. 

 

1.  The below measure returns whatever the selected value is from a slicer

 

 

Selected Project = SELECTEDVALUE('Programme Financials Unpivot'[Project No.], BLANK())

 

 

 

2. The below measure sums a column by multiple conditions.  The measure above is also used as part of a condition.


Total = CALCULATE(

SUM('Programme Financials Unpivot'[Value]),

FILTER(

                'Programme Financials Unpivot',

                'Programme Financials Unpivot'[Attribute] = MIN(Period_Table[Attribute]) && 'Programme Financials Unpivot'[Period Snapshot] = 12 && 'Programme Financials Unpivot'[Project No.] = [Selected Project]

                )

)

 

 

I now want to create a cumulative/running total of the Total measure. 

 

Could you anyone please advise? The solutions I use often return the same result as the Total measure.

Resolved. I removed the custom table and created an index in the source table ("Programme Financials Unpivot"), then followed the suggestions below

Hi @themistoklis thanks for the suggestion.

I do not want to apply a cumulative/running total measure using the "Programme Financials Unpivot" table as the source. I am actually trying to apply this measure to the Total measure in the table I displayed above.

This table is a custom table. The values returned by the Total measure are derived from "Programme Financials Unpivot" table using a number of conditions.

Do you know if this a way to apply a running total/cumulative to this table?

 

best regards,

Amik

Hi everyone - any ideas on this one?

Can you try the following:

Running Total =
CALCULATE ( [Total] ,
ALL ( 'Programme Financials Unpivot' ),
'Programme Financials Unpivot'[Index] <= EARLIER ( 'Programme Financials Unpivot'[Index] )
)
