Measure calculates cumulative sales

I am asking for help in a measure that calculates cumulative sales



When I make cumulative measures based on dates the DAX looks like the below, where Forecast USD Total is my sum measure and I have a dedicated Dates table.

Cumulative Forecast =
CALCULATE( [Forecast USD Total],
Dates[Date] <= MAX( Dates[Date] ) ) )

Your model has a dedicated Date table, but have you tried making another dedicated table for those 15-minute intervals you’ve called out to narrow down that context further?


The Measure shows that “Sales” is being filtered instead of dates.

Below is a simplified version with the small correction I made:

Cumulative_Sales =
CALCULATE ([SalesDaily],
    FILTER (ALLSELECTED ( Dim15mPeriods ),
        Dim15mPeriods[Dateto] <= MAX ( Sales[Dateto] )

Below is your version that I made the adjustment to (pbix file was too large to upload):

Sales_Cumulative =
VAR LastSalesHour = CALCULATE ( MAX ( Sales[Dateto] ), ALL ( Sales ) )
    IF (SELECTEDVALUE ( Sales[Dateto] ) > LastSalesHour,
        BLANK (),
        CALCULATE ([SalesDaily],
            FILTER (ALLSELECTED ( Dim15mPeriods ),
                Dim15mPeriods[Dateto] <= MAX ( Dim15mPeriods[Dateto] )

Hi, powerbideveloper
Thank you for your help. Measure works perfectly.
We have also a second need.

If we have two lines in the same table, but we have more than 1 Store, we need another measure that will be a sum of cumulative sales for this “datefrom-dateto” period for a day, so it will be the same value in both rows
also, sum of cumulative sales_exceptSelected must be the same sum, but except value of Sales_Cumulative in current row.

Date / Weekday / StoreName / Datefrom / Dateto / Sales / Sales_Cumulative / Sum_Sales_Cumulative / Sum_Sales_Cumulative_ExceptSelected

01.04.2019 / Monday / Store1 / 11:15 / 11:30 / 68.10 / 71.90 / 351.90 / 280.00
01.04.2019 / Monday / Store2 / 11:15 / 11:30 / 100.00 / 200.00 / 351.90 / 151.90
01.04.2019 / Monday / Store3 / 11:15 / 11:30 / 50.00 / 80.00 / 351.90 / 271.90

how to create Sum_Sales_Cumulative and Sum_Sales_Cumulative_ExceptSelected measures?


I’m glad it works perfectly.

This seem like a new question and you would be better served if you post it as a new question. This will open it up to more help and quicker response but I will definitely have a look at it when I have a moment.
