## Running total?

So I have a dates, hour, and goals query.

A monthly goal is August "3000" hours, so my daily one is 96.77. I am trying to get my goals column to increase by 96.77 every day of August until it's 3000.

For example my goals table I have:
Month       | Goal |  Daily Goal
7/1/2017   | 4532 |  146.19
8/1/2017   | 4000 | 96.77

How could I get it to associate my daily goal with a date in Dates and add "96.77" to itself each day of the month?

## Re: Running total?

If you are going to have a table\matrix that is by day, and you have your daily goal, you could just multiply the daily goal by the month day:

Get day of month: DAY('Calendar'[Date])

Get goal value rolleed up:

=DAY('Calendar'[Date]) * DailyGoal

The solution worked but only if I used the dates I made in the Daily Table. It wouldn't work with the dates in my Dates table, and for some reason when I added my dates in the Daily Table they would all be for the same day regardless of filter.

Any chance you can share a copy of your PBIX file so we can review?  As you are looking for Day level detail, you'll have to have a Date table, but any Date table (as long as it has 1 entry for every date) should have worked just fine...?

Did you means use target table to create the rolling total calendar?

If this is a case, you can refer to below sample.

1. Calculate column daily target:

`Daily = [Total Goal]/DAY(DATE([Date].[Year],[Date].[MonthNo]+1,1)-1) `

2. Rolling target calendar based on target table.

`CALENDAR = ADDCOLUMNS(SELECTCOLUMNS(CALENDAR(DATE(2017,1,1),TODAY()),"Date",[Date],"Daily Goal",LOOKUPVALUE(Records[Daily],Records[Date],DATE(YEAR([Date]),MONTH([Date]),1))),"Rolling",DAY([Date])*[Daily Goal])`

If above not help, please share some sample data to analysis.
