## cumulative sum in bar chart

Hello everyone,

I am trying to calculate cumulative sum in a bar chart in Qlik Sense which has two dimensions; month and year. My measure is sum of Sales.

What I want is, sales values should be cumulatively summed in bar chart for the selected months.

For example: March 2016  sales values should be sum of Jan 2016 and Feb 2016 on pivot table and rest of them also should be the same.

Right now I have below bar chart, it is only showing the related month year sales data.

I have tried "=RangeSum(Above(Sum(Sales), 0, RowNo(total)))" but it has not worked. Result of the "=RangeSum(Above(Sum(Sales), 0, RowNo(total)))" is below picture.

Please suggest me any solution if anyone of you gone through the same problem.

Thanks.

Give this a shot

Aggr(RangeSum(Above(Sum(Sales), 0, RowNo())),Year, (Month, (NUMERIC)))

## Re: cumulative sum in bar chart

try:

aggr(rangesum(above(Sum(Sales),0,RowNo())),SecondDim,FirstDim)

Result (per analogy):

aggr(rangesum(above(Sum(Sales),0,RowNo())),nom,num)

## Re: cumulative sum in bar chart

you want to eliminate the second dimension when u cumulate ur measure?

Because, the way things are with my expressions; each month; the second dimension will be cumulated..

see a and b :

if u want to cumulate the whole thing by month and sum up all ur values of ur second dim then do as follow:

aggr(rangesum(above(Sum(Sales),0,RowNo())),Month)

result:

I want to cumulate the whole thing, if month Oct is selected, result should be like below picture.

aggr(rangesum(above(Sum(Sales),0,RowNo())),Month) is not working, result is the second pic.

## Re: cumulative sum in bar chart

can u please share a test application so I can take a look at this?

Because it works for me (without selections..)

stalwar1‌, how can this work with selections?

because when I select a month, qlik will this only this month and thus would not be able the above months..

Any idea?
