Running total with hierarchy (again)

Hello everybody,

yes, another running total question. I think, I miss something in my formula or just think the wrong way.

My tables look like this:

Table 1:

Order ID

Value

Client

Signed Date (Date)

Country

Segment

Table 2:

Country

Segment

Planned Value

Date (Month)

Table 3 (Time Dimension):

Date

Month

Quarter

Year

What I want to do:

I want to calculate my running totals for both of my tables per month and then display them in one diagram (to see, if I hit or miss my planned value for this month.

Important/Problem: At the same time I want to have the "Segment" as the legend. So that I can see which segments take the biggest part of my values.

--> Whenever I do this, it just adds my segment values to the previous "totals".

E.g.

January total:

500 - Segment A

400 - Segment B

100 - Segment C

1000 - Total

Then it shows me the Value "2000" for January.

My current Formula

Running Total =

CALCULATE (

SUM ( 'Table 1 (signed date) 2018'[Value] );

ALL ( 'Table 1 (signed date) 2018');

'Table 1 (signed date) 2018[Signed Date]' <= EARLIER ( 'Table 1 (signed date) 2018'[Signed Date] )

)

Goal:

Be able to see the running total per month / quarter for Table 1 and Table 2 while being able to display by Segment.

I hope I could explain myself correctly...

Best Regards

Fatih

Re: Running total with hierarchy (again)

Hello @faoezdeb,

Please try the following measure:

Running Total =
TOTALYTD(SUM('IS - Order'[Value]),'Date'[Date])

Hello @rajulshah,

thank you for your proposal.

Unfortunately, as our initial data is a bit more complicated and we didn't have time to try further solutions - we sticket to a more work intensive python solution.

But I also tried your proposal and unfortunately didn't receive the results I expected. The Values don't add up as wished.

Kind Regards
