I have tried with built in functionality of power BI i.e. “New quick measure->Running Total”. But it does not  work for me as you can see here multiple dimension present in the table (Category, TypeID, Date).

 

I have also tried with the solution from the following post, but it does not work for me:

Any ideas would be much appreciated.  Thanks for any help in advance!

Hi @mayurdhote

 

In that case.

 

First Add an Index Column to your Table using QUERY Editor

(Before adding Index Sort your Table by Dates if not already sorted)

Now you can get the Cumulative Total using this Index Column

 

Running_Total with Index =
CALCULATE (
    SUM ( Table1[Amount] ),
    FILTER ( ALL ( Table1 ), Table1[Index] <= MAX ( Table1[Index] ) )
)

In your scenario, only Data column contains unique values, so you should apply filter on Date column. 

 

Running Total Amount = CALCULATE(SUM(Table1[Amount]),FILTER(ALL(Table1),Table1[Date]<=MAX(Table1[Date])))

Thanks @v-sihou-msft !

But what if in above scenario, date column does not have unique values?

The image below shows the Cumulative Total with and without Index

It is your sample data. I just added one row with same date
