    Cumulative values by Date

    Hi all,

    I am trying to implement the cumulative values measure in MS Power BI - (which is supposed to be the engine for Excel Power BI).

    I have attempted to follow the tutorial on http://www.daxpatterns.com/cumulative-total/.
    I've created and loaded a date table.

    I've created a relationship between Datekey[date ] and PBI_KPIs[DateTo]

    I've copied in the dax code

    CumulativeGCI = 
    CALCULATE(
    	SUM(PBI_KPIs[GCI]), 
    		FILTER(ALL(DateKey[Date]), DateKey[Date] <= MAX (DateKey[Date])
    		)
    )
    and the .... thing won't work.
    can anyone spot my error?

    thanks

    got it.

    was bad syntax
    correct DAX is

    CumulativeGCI MEASURE = 
    CALCULATE(
    	SUM(PBI_KPIs[GCI]), 
    		FILTER(ALL('DateKey'[Date]), 'DateKey'[Date] <= MAX ('DateKey'[Date])
    		)
    )

    Are you saying that it needs the apostrophes around the table name? That seems odd, it doesn't have any spaces within the name.

    Can't say I know how, why or what.....
    I poked it and it moved

    There is probably another explanation, and I shall eventually learn what it is
