Running Total past current date

Hi Power BI Users,

Below is a sample table visual, where all attributes are Measures:


Actuals = Sum(Actuals)

Burn Rate Avg = Avg of last 6 months

Burn Rate EAC = If Date<Today, Actuals,Burn Rate Ave

Running Burn = Running Total acorss Burn Rate EAC.



As you can see the Running Burn goes up to May then remains at the May figure for the remainder on the months. 


What I want to achieve is for the Running Burn to cumulative the EAC all the way to Dec.


That is Jun = 87.37+20.89 = 108.26; Jul = 108.26+20.89 = 129.15 and so on...


Is there a way to achieve this result?

CALCULATE(SUM(Table[EAC]), Table[Date] <= _curDate)

I gave the DAX formual a try and it is returning total which begins several years in the past.  I want the Jan figure to be starting from the current year and do a running total from that point

Hi @ThomasT ,


You may create measure like DAX below.


fins_Running_Burn =
    SUM ( Table1[fins_Burn_EAC] ),
    FILTER (
        ALLSELECTED ( Table1 ),
        YEAR ( Table1[Date] ) = YEAR ( MAX ( Table1[Date] ) )
            && MONTH ( Table1[Date] ) <= MONTH ( MAX ( Table1[Date] ) )

Thank for the reply.


If you see my table for the months of June to December, it is the same.  Why is this?


Is there a way to make the running total to apply for these months as well?
