Developing a Graph Visual which shows the Trend of data in a bar chart with trend line

Hi experts ,

I have a doubt while developing a visual , i want to see a column chart visual which has data in the below format .
X-Axis having week information
Y Axis which has the count of items sold till that date

For example - assume a small mini mart which sells stationery , i want to see the graph as x axis having week number in that year, and y axis has the number of boxes of paper sold .

if 3 boxes are sold in week 1 the week 1 column in the chart should show 3 and the next week 5 are sold . for 2nd week we should have the column data as 8 in the column chart so on likewise . any help is much appreciated . Thanks in Advance .

This is commion question

How it works:

Firstly create  calendar table

In my example I have added

Week ending =
// get week ending on sunday date
'Calendar'[Date] - WEEKDAY('Calendar'[Date],2) +7

Then add dax masures for ..

Total sales = SUM(Sales[Sales])

Cumulative sales =
VAR mymindate = MIN('Calendar'[Date])
VAR mymaxdate = MAX('Calendar'[Date])
VAR today = TODAY()
RETURN
IF(mymindate > today, BLANK(),

CALCULATE(
[Total sales],
'Calendar'[Date] <= mymaxdate
))
