## Dynamic Cumulative Totals on Pivoted Table

I have a table with pivoted data as shown below.

I want to create a display a cumulative staff totals by year, for either of the Attributes selected on a Slicer object (education level or gender).  How do I design a solution (a cumulative total) that re-calculates cumulative totals based on user selections in a Slicer?

So far, I've used a standard cumulative total calculation, but it does not provide accurate results:

``CumulativeStaffTotal = CALCULATE( SUM(Merge1[netchange]), FILTER(ALLSELECTED(Merge1), Merge1[Value]=EARLIER(Merge1[Value]) && Merge1[year]=EARLIER(Merge1[year]) ))``

What approach would you use to solve this problem?

Hi ,  @bcohen

According to your description, Do you want to calculate the cumulative value of the year based on the year? For example, 1973=1971+1972.

If this , you can just try to use this dax code:

Measure = CALCULATE( SUM('Merge1'[netchange]) ,'Merge1'[year]<= MAX('Merge1'[year]))

The result as follows:

If this method does not meet your needs, you can provide us with your special sample data and the desired output sample data in the form of tables, so that we can better help you solve the problem. (You can also upload you sample .pbix [without sensitive data] to the OneDrive and share with the OneDrive link to me ! )

Thank you for your time and sharing, and thank you for your support and understanding of PowerBI!
