## Cumulative total - but only until MAX(sales date)

I have created a measure to display cumulative total using the guidelines on daxpatterns.com.

Measure:

Sales Acc = CALCULATE(Sales[SalesAmount];FILTER(ALL(Dates);Dates[Date]<=MAX(Dates[Date])))

My date table goes beyond the last sales date leaving me with a simple line chart, that visually doesn't work.

The question is:

How do I change the measure so I can get picture A instead of picture B? I would prefer not to set the filter manually on the visual, but let it be dynamic.

In your scenario, since your date table goes beyond the last sales date, so some date have no sales. So your get Picture B. If you want the expected reults, you need to filter out the dates which have no sales.

You need to create a column in your date table to check if the current date is before than the max date in your sales date.

Column = IF('Date'[DateKey]<MAX(Sales[DateID]),1,0)

Then add this column to your visual filter.

Hi,

I think that instead of this

Sales Acc = CALCULATE(Sales[SalesAmount];FILTER(ALL(Dates);Dates[Date]<=MAX(Dates[Date])))

it should be

Sales Acc = CALCULATE(Sales[SalesAmount];FILTER(ALL(Dates);Dates[Date]<=MAX(Sales[SalesDate])))

you want the MAX of the SalesDate from the Sales Table.
