How to create a running total that will flatline once no more data

My goal is to go from Picture 1 to Picture 2(below). I have 3 calculations for the running totals. My challenge is with the yellow line. The yellow line calculations does not stretch to the final year and I want it to be able to flatline to the end.

My DAX calculation for the yellow line is like so:

 

CALCULATE(SUM('Table1'[Value]),

FILTER(ALLSELECTED('Table2'[Date]),

ISONORAFTER('Table2'[Date], MAX('Table2'[Date]), DESC))

 

This^ calculation works great for calculating the running total, except it stops once there is no data. I want it to do what is shown in Picture 2 - to strech til the end. Does anyone know how to accomplish this? Thanks!

@sunnysideup96 , Make sure table 2 is a date table, maked as a date table, and have a single directional join

 

 

Try like

CALCULATE(SUM('Table1'[Value]),

FILTER(ALL('Date'[Date]),

ISONORAFTER('Date'[Date], MAX('Date'[Date]), DESC))

To get the best of the time intelligence function. Make sure you have a date calendar and it has been marked as the date in model view. Also, join it with the date column of your fact/s. Refer :radacad sqlbi My Video Series Appreciate your Kudos.
