How to get a running total in a line chart?

Hi,

 

I have the following table and i'm looking to create a line chart in Power BI as per the example below (please excuse the drawing). How do I get a running total of 'Items' on each date? i.e. for 'Admin', on the 4/6/2024, the total on the line chart would be 40.

Example of running total:

Thank you,

Daniel

Hi @dankello ,

 

Try to create the following measure:

 

Total Values = CALCULATE( SUM(Table[Items]), Table[Date] <= MAX(Table[Date]))
