Weird Error with Running Total Measure

Hey All I have data in the form below

IDAmountMonth
112341
14233
11255
243524351
23246
22345232
3243

However when I try to run my running total I get this odd graph

So it correctly calculates my the running total until it reaches the end of my data and then plummets to 0 when it should just maintain a straight line infinitely.

My code for the measure is:

Amount Incurred running total in Month =
CALCULATE(
    SUM('FACT_sales'[Amount]),
    FILTER(
        ALLSELECTED('FACT_sales'[Month]),
        FACT_sales[Month]<= MAX(FACT_sales[Month]
    )
))

Any ideas why my running total is failing after some point and how to solve it?
Note: that I ran the exact same table through an excel pivottable and got nice graph below

@anonymouAsd , Create a new month table

 

month = generateseries(1,20,1)

 

join it month in your table and create a measure like

 

CALCULATE(
SUM('FACT_sales'[Amount]),
FILTER(
ALLSELECTED('month'),
month[Month]<= MAX(month[Month]
)
))

Hi, @anonymouAsd 

 

You can try the following methods.

Amount Incurred running total in Month =
CALCULATE (
    SUM ( 'Table'[Amount] ),
    FILTER ( ALL ( 'Table' ), [Month] <= MAX ( 'Table'[Month] ) )
)

Is this the result you expect?
