In the “Fields” pane, right-click on your table (e.g., “Sales”) and select “New Measure.”

Enter the DAX Formula:

Give your new measure a name (e.g., “Product Cumulative Sales”).

Use the following DAX formula to calculate the cumulative sum:

Product Cumulative Sales = 

Var A= [Sales_] – Sum of sales




        SUMMARIZE(ALL(Sales), Sales[Product ID],

        “revenue”, [Sales_]),




After entering the formula, press Enter to create the measure.
