Hi @Midhun ,

 

EARLIER function is useful to calculated column. Please check whether you are using it for measure.

 

You can use MAX function instead of EARLIER.

 

cumu = CALCULATE(
sum(Email_Campaign[Valid_Email]),
FILTER(
ALL( Email_Campaign[Dummy_Date] ),
Email_Campaign[Dummy_Date] <= MAX(Email_Campaign[Dummy_Date])
)
)

I tried with your DAX, still facing an issue. stating that

ARLIER/EARLIEST refers to an earlier row context which doesn't exist.

 

cumu = CALCULATE(
sum(Email_Campaign[Valid_Email]),
FILTER(
ALL( Email_Campaign[Dummy_Date] ),
Email_Campaign[Dummy_Date] <= EARLIER(Email_Campaign[Dummy_Date])
)
)

DAX engine interprets this filter modifier

 CALCULATE( ... Email_Campaign[Dummy_Date] <= EARLIER( Table[someColumn] ) )

as

= CALCULATE(
    ...,
    FILTER(
        ALL( Email_Campaign[Dummy_Date] ),
        Email_Campaign[Dummy_Date] <= EARLIER( Table[someColumn] )
    )
)

and FILTER( ... ) evaluates under the filter context outside CALCULATE(); obviously, there's no row context avaible for EARLIER.
