Getting total open backlog and show over time

Hello, 

 

I am quite new to powerbi , but been liking it so far. 

 

I have a question regarding showing totals of an open backlog from week to week.

 

To give context, I am extracting an open backlog weekly. I want to show the total from week to week. The end goal would be something to look like this:

backlog 3.png

 

 

The data source is from an excel with multiple tabs which contain the extracted backlog from each week.

excel backlog.PNGbacklog 2.PNG

 

How am I able to show the total of each backlog across the weeks?

 

Thank you in advance

@JezMazter , Append these table with Week No or week date column

 

or have week no or date column and join all of them with a common week/date table and the sum of measures from all three tables

 

Sum('Week 38 backlog'[Value]) + Sum('Week 39 backlog'[Value]) +Sum('Week 40 backlog'[Value])
