Help writing DAX measure

I have a table with the format below . I need to be able to create a measure that calculates the sum of the values based on the corresponding date (month to date ONLY). For instance, today's value would be 14 and tomorrow's would be 214.

 

Thank you for the help

 

Date                Value

1-31                 200

2-1                   2

2-2                   1

2-3                   2

2-4                   1

2-5                   2

2-6                   1

2-7                   2

2-8                   3

2-9                   200

@thampton,

 

You may try DAX function TOTALMTD, create a measure and use DAX formula below:

Result =
TOTALMTD ( SUM ( Table[Value] ), Table[Date] )

Hi Tampton,

 

First you need to have a date column with DD/MM/YYYY, and use DATESMTD function to get desired results.

ok, i see now, and do  you want it to work with real time? or simply add the days before the date selected?? 

@Anonymous Yes, updating real time would be perfect. I dont plan on using slicer to control date.
