## running total for multiple months or years

Hello Community,

I am looking for a way to calculcate the running total for a number of years or months. E.g. I want to accumulate the values like:

Running Total 1 Year

Running Total 2 Year

Running Total 3 Year

Running Total 4 Year

And have it all displayed in a table to consists of 20+ years.

Hi,

I am not sure if I understood your question correctly without seeing how expected outcomes look like, but please try to write measures like below.

``````Running total one year measure: =
SUMX (
DATESINPERIOD ( 'Calendar'[Date], LASTDATE ( 'Calendar'[Date] ), -1, YEAR ),
)
``````

``````Running total two years measure: =
SUMX (
DATESINPERIOD ( 'Calendar'[Date], LASTDATE ( 'Calendar'[Date] ), -2, YEAR ),
)
``````

``````Running total three years measure: =
SUMX (
DATESINPERIOD ( 'Calendar'[Date], LASTDATE ( 'Calendar'[Date] ), -3, YEAR ),
)
``````

If this post helps, then please consider accepting it as the solution to help other members find it faster, and give a big thumbs up.
