## Running Total returns wrong value

Hi all,

I'm trying to figure out the running total quick measures. I've added in the base as the sum of couriers and the field as the start date.

As you can see below, the running totals aren't correct. Could you let me know what I've done wrong please? I'm trying to calculcate how many couriers there are per month in each quarter & year.

Thanks!

You need to create a calendar table with distinct dates, and connect that date column to your current created at date. Then you would use the new calendar date in the filter expression. For example, if you data is from 2020 to 2021, try

1. Create a calendar table =Calendar(date(2020,11), date(2021,12,31))
2. Connect the new date table with Created_At.

3. create the measure:

Measure = calculate(sum(sheet1[value]), Filter(allselected(calendar table), isonorafter(calendar table[date], max(calendar table[date]), desc))

Are you using Is_created_at in the table? Or different columns? The same formula works like a charm on my end:

They are columns and not from the table. I wasn't sure how to reference to the column.

You'd need to create a relationship between that table and your Sheet1 on Created_at column. And When you create a quick measure, don't place created_at column but instead, place date column that's on the related table.

Hope that makes sense

This is just test tables. Please adjust according to your model. You can drag and drop a column to another column in a different table

I wasn't able to do a many to one. I don't quite understand relationships so I think I might have to go and read up on it then figure out how to reference the table in the running total.
