I have a data table that has transactions for a retail business. I am wanting to make a line chart which has each year as a separate line, and then the month/day as the horizontal axis with quantity sold as the vertical axis. Ultimately I would like the line to be a running total as of the date on the horizontal axis the quantity sold year to date.
The first problem I am having is with getting just the month-day. I was able to separate out the year from the 'SaleDay' but any time I try to just get the month-day separate I keep getting errors. I am using DirectQuery to an sql database so as the database updates the chart will update as well. So some solutions I have found on the forum have not worked because it says it is not supported by directquery.
If anyone has a suggestion for also get a running total (the quick measure way didn't work for me, maybe I did wrong fields) I would be very appreciative.
