Incremental line graph

Please could you help guiding me on this? 


At the moment I have: 



Total Incidents is DISTINCTCOUNT of report ID 

Total Incidents = DISTINCTCOUNT('Report_Incidents'[ID])+0

Month Name and FY are from the calendar table 


How do I make this line graph to appear incrementally for each year? 

Aug = Aug count

Sep = Aug + Sep counts

Oct = Aug + Sep + Oct counts 



Please please, thank you very much

Example 2 should be quite useful:

RunningSum = SUMX ( WINDOW ( 1, ABS, 0, REL, ALLSELECTED ( 'Date'[Fiscal Year], 'Date'[Month Number Of Year] ), PARTITIONBY ( 'Date'[Fiscal Year] ) ), [Total Sales] )

Thank you for your help and suggestion, I ended up using: 



Thank you very much for your patience, my DAX knowledge is <0.  

I will keep researching.


Thanks again
