Is there a way in Power BI to sum all values in the column that come before an empty row?

Hey,

 

I am trying to sum all values in column "Delta" (please see below) that come before the first empty row. Is there a way using DAX to do this?  In other words, for the below data, I need a measure that calculates 2.1 + 3.5 + 7.7 + 1.2 = 14.5.

 

IDDelta
12.1
23.5
37.7
41.2
5 
65.8
71.0
8 
94.5
106.8
11 
122.1
13 
14

 

 

Thank you!

Hi @eliele ,

 

You can create a measure as below:

Measure 3 =
VAR _minID =
    CALCULATE ( MIN ( Sheet6[ID] ), Sheet6[Delta] = BLANK () )
RETURN
    CALCULATE ( SUM ( Sheet6[Delta] ), Sheet6[ID] < _minID )
