What is the most efficient way to get running total based on two columns?

Say I have the following table(I will call it 'Schools'):

 

SchoolWeekPickups
Harbor Elementary143
Harbor Elementary221
Harbor Elementary365
Harbor Elementary434
Sinclair Elementary124
Sinclair Elementary216


I want to see if I could create a 'running total' column(or measure if that's easier) based on the 'School' and 'Weeks' column, so it would look something like this:

SchoolWeekPickups Running Total Pickups
Harbor Elementary14343
Harbor Elementary22164
Harbor Elementary365129
Harbor Elementary434163
Sinclair Elementary12424
Sinclair Elementary21640


How would I go about doing that?

Hey @Anonymous ,

 

try the following measure, that should do it:

 

Running Total Pickups = 
VAR vLastWeek = MAX( Schools[Week] )
RETURN
    CALCULATE(
        SUM( Schools[Pickups] ),
        Schools[Week] <= vLastWeek
    )

 

 

If you need any help please let me know.
