Formatting measure values as currency

Hi,

 

I have a column in my dataset which is formatted as currency, and contains sales values. I also have a measure which calculates a running total for a given period using a dax function:

 

RunningNettoWeek = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[NETTOPREMIE]);FILTER(ALL(Sales[Week]);Sales[Week] <= MAX(Sales[Week])))

 

The problem is that the values lose their formatting when processed through a measure. Is there any way for me to get that formatting back? I've tried wrapping my CALCULATE() function in FORMAT(), but that resulted in values not showing at all in my charts.

Click on the the measure name in the FIELDS pane and then select the Modeling Tab. In the Formatting area click the drop down next to the $ and choose your selected currency.
