Hello -

How do I do this? I cannot figure it out. I need a running total down a column by parent categories. They need to build on one another. Category 1 is worst case. Category 2 is better case (results from 1+2) and Category 3 is even better case (1+2+3).

Example below:

Step2:

Step3:

create a measure by this formula

`Measure = CALCULATE(SUM(Table1[Value]),FILTER(ALL('Dim Level'),'Dim Level'[Level]<=MAX('Dim Level'[Level])))`

Hello -

Thank you for getting back to me. Unfortunately, I tried this but it did not give me the resulet I needed. I do not see any subcategories?

Here is another example below - animal total is added to reptile total is added to bird total.
