## Running total between two selected periods

Hello,

I have a fact table with a relationship to a calendar table marked as Date table. Relation ship is one to n based on a date column.

I can create time intelligence clculations like YTD, Previsous year, previos period but I cannot create a running total that would work between two dates, i.e. If I select March to October of one of the year in the table I want to see the cumulative total starting with March value and ending in October as a running total.

It will not work, I tried several calculations, it is just replicating the value for the line not calculating the running total.
Formula 1
PTD Amount USD:=CALCULATE (
SUM(Bol[AmountUSD]);
FILTER (
ALL('Sailing Date'[Sailing Date]) ;
'Sailing Date'[Sailing Date] >= MIN('Sailing Date'[Sailing Date] )&&
'Sailing Date'[Sailing Date] <= MAX ('Sailing Date'[Sailing Date])))

Formula 2
Cumulative = CALCULATE (
SUM(Bol[AmountUSD]),
FILTER (
ALLSELECTED( 'BOL' ),
'Bol'[Sailing Date] >=MIN ('Sailing Date'[Sailing Date])&&
'Bol'[Sailing Date] <= MAX ( 'Bol'[Sailing Date] )))

I am not sure where to look at to find what is preventing these formulas to work as expected.

Any idea is appreciated, Thanks

Hello,

Thanks for all your suggestions. I finally found a way to calculate this running total using a formula like this one.

```Cumulative Dollar :=
IF (
MIN ( 'Dim_Calendar'[ID_Date] )
<= CALCULATE ( MAX ( BOL[Sailing_Date_Key] ), ALL ( BOL ) );
CALCULATE(SUM(Bol[AmountUSD]),
Filter(
ALLSELECTED('Dim_Calendar'),'Dim_Calendar'[DateASDate]<=MAX('Dim_Calendar'[DateASDate])))
)```

Which produces exactly the result I want

YYYYWK  AmountUSD  Cumulative

 201846 1'327'243 1'327'243 201847 1'192'890 2'520'134 201848 1'604'916 4'125'049 201849 745'256 4'870'306 201850 20'792 4'891'098 201851 4'891'098 201852 4'891'098 201901 4'891'098 201902 4'891'098 201903 4'891'098 201904 4'891'098 201905 4'891'098 201906 4'891'098 201907 32'834 4'923'932 201908 4'923'932 201909 4'923'932

Hi @Anonymous,

Try this formula, please. The cause is the initial date is dynamic.

```Measure 7 =
VAR minDate =
CALCULATE (
MIN ( 'Sailing Date'[Sailing Date] ),
ALLSELECTED ( 'Sailing Date'[Sailing Date] )
)
RETURN
CALCULATE (
Bol[AmountUSD],
FILTER (
ALL ( 'Sailing Date'[Sailing Date] ),
'Sailing Date'[Sailing Date] >= minDate
&& 'Sailing Date'[Sailing Date] <= MAX ( 'Sailing Date'[Sailing Date] )
)
)
```

Best Regards,

My running total should not have Running Total with date on rows.

I should use Month Year. Format "May 2019".

As the solution use:

ALLSELECTED ( 'Sailing Date'[Sailing Date] )

ALL ( 'Sailing Date'[Sailing Date] ),

I change to

ALLSELECTED ( 'Sailing Date') Without the column.

ALL ( 'Sailing Date') Without the column.

So it doesn't matter which column from calender table Used on rows, the Running Total will Work.

The code is:

``````Measure 7.2 =
VAR minDate =
CALCULATE (
MIN ( 'Date_2'[Date] );
ALLSELECTED ( Date_2)
)
RETURN
CALCULATE (
[Sales Amount];
FILTER (
ALL ('Date_2'  );
'Date_2'[Date] >= minDate
&& 'Date_2'[Date] <= MAX ( 'Date_2'[Date] )
)
) ``````

Hello,

I was able to get the running total calculation working. I can now select any time period and get the running total starting at the begining of the period.

```PTD Amount USD:=
IF (
MIN ('Sailing Date'[date_key])
<= CALCULATE ( MAX ( BOL[Sailing_Date_Key] ); ALL (Bol ) );
CALCULATE(SUM(Bol[AmountUSD]);
Filter(
ALLSELECTED('Sailing Date');'Sailing Date'[Sailing Date]<=MAX('Sailing Date'[Sailing Date])))
)  ```

The result is like that

YYYYWK   AmountUSD   Cumulative

 201846 1'327'243 1'327'243 201847 1'192'890 2'520'134 201848 1'604'916 4'125'049 201849 745'256 4'870'306 201850 20'792 4'891'098 201851 4'891'098 201907 32'834 4'923'932 201908 4'923'932 201909 4'923'932
