## Date math problem: if (ExpectedDate<=date, QTY, 0)

I have a standard Date table, Sales table, and Incoming table.

The Sales Table and Incoming Table both have QTY, and a Sales_Date for sales, and an Expected_Date for Incoming.

I plot daily sales on a line chart, with a measure that simply sums Sales_QTY (Sales_QTY_SUM).  I don't have to do anything else, if Date is on the axis, I get what I want, for sales.  I also have a measure that sums Incoming_QTY (Incoming_QTY_SUM), and it works the same way, but that is not exactly what I want.

I want to see Incoming_QTY as a cumulative total going forward from Expected_Date.  So if an incoming record has a Date of March 1st, I want to see 0 before March 1st, and Incoming_QTY in the line chart results starting on March 1st, then on March 2nd, and March 3rd, ..

Date[Date] and Incoming[Expected_Date) are both columns, and trying to use them in an IF statement fails because I am not using any aggregates.

IF([Expected_Date]<=[Date],Incoming_QTY,0) is the logic.

How do end up with a measure that will plot this properly on a line chart?

Thanx

Phil

Try this slight modification...

```Cumulative Incoming = CALCULATE(
SUM(Incoming[Incoming Qty]) ,
FILTER(
ALLSELECTED('Incoming'),
'Incoming'[Incoming Date]<=MAX('Dates'[Date])
)
)```

## Re: Date math problem: if (ExpectedDate<=date, QTY, 0)

Sounds like you are just after a cumulative measure similar to this :

```Cumulative Incoming = CALCULATE(
SUM(Incoming[Incoming Qty]) ,
FILTER(
ALL('Incoming'),
'Incoming'[Incoming Date]<=MAX('Dates'[Date])
)
)```

I have a PBIX file you can try it with here https://1drv.ms/u/s!AtDlC2rep7a-kHTghFw8Upt_GDbN

## Re: Date math problem: if (ExpectedDate<=date, QTY, 0)

Awesome!  So I have this:

IncomingQTYCumulative = CALCULATE(SUM(IncomingInventories[order_qty]),FILTER(ALL(IncomingInventories),'IncomingInventories'[expected_date]<=MAX('Date'[Date])))

And while it works perfectly, these inventory numbers are by Item_ID, relating to 'item[Item_id] and this measure is immune to slicers tied to the Item table.  I know why, because of the ALL(IncomingInventories), but I need to be able to slice by 'Item[Stat_ID].

I can hardcode it into the measure, but that is not a good solution.  How can I allow the slicer to carry through?

Thanx

That seems to work perfectly.  Thank you very much!
