Help needed: Measure to return a cumulative (i.e. running) sum for a calculated column

Hello

 

Fairly new to Power BI, so there's probably a simple solution for my problem!

 

I have the following table ('Burnup Data') where I am trying to calculate a running total (Planned Cumulative) based on Planned. However, the existing Planned Cumulative is not the Expected Result:

I have the following measures:

 

Planned =
VAR Sprint = [Sprint]
VAR MAXDate = MAX('Current PI - All User Stories'[Date])
RETURN
IF(MAXDate >= [Date],BLANK(),
CALCULATE(
SUM('Current PI - All User Stories'[Story Points]),
'Current PI - All User Stories'[Date] = MAXDate, 'Current PI - All User Stories'[Sprint] IN { Sprint })
)
 
Planned Cumulative =
CALCULATE(
SUM('Burnup Data'[Planned]),
FILTER(
ALL('Burnup Data'),
'Burnup Data'[Date] <= MAX('Burnup Data'[Date])
)
)
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi @simonm8008 ,

I have created a simple sample, please refer to it to see if it helps you.

sum for a calculated column.pbix

Create a measure.

Measure =
CALCULATE (
    SUM ( 'Table'[Planned] ),
    FILTER ( ALL ( 'Table' ), 'Table'[date] <= SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Table'[date] ) )
)

 If the planed column is written by a measure.

Please have a try.

Measure 2 = SUMX(FILTER(ALL('Table'),'Table'[date]<=SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[date])),[Planned_])

If I have misunderstood your meaning, you can create simple data with excel, then show me the screenshots about the data and the desired output your want.

 

Best regards.
