Total YTD value - ignore month

Hi there,

 

I want to create a balance sheet in Power BI. 

I have calculated a monthly value (column bedrag) in below screenshot. This works fine.

I also want to show a YTD column. The measure I use for this is:

 

YTD value 2022 = CALCULATE(TOTALYTD(SUM(_VW_FINANCIAL_REPORTING[bedrag]), Kalender[Date]))
As you can see in the screenshot below (column YTD value 2022) I can see values for periods 202203 and 202206. These periods have transactions for this line item. The rest of the periods, the YTD column stays empty.
However, I want to see the YTD value from 202203 for the months 202204 and 202205 as well. And then from 202207 on, I would like to see the YTD value from 202206. 
 
If I use this function to ignore the period filter:
YTD value 2022 2 = CALCULATE(TOTALYTD(SUM(_VW_FINANCIAL_REPORTING[bedrag]), Kalender[Date]), ALL(Kalender[JaarMndNr]))
 
I get the total YTD value in each month (column YTD value 2). This is not correct.
 
Can anyone please let me know how I would be able to have the current YTD value in each row?
 
Many thanks!

@Sophie_MGG , Make sure the visual is using period/month and date from the Kalendar table. Kalendar table is marked as date table and join with Fact is single directional

To get the best of the time intelligence function. Make sure you have a date calendar and it has been marked as the date in model view. Also, join it with the date column of your fact/s. Refer :radacad sqlbi My Video Series Appreciate your Kudos.
