Then try:

Sum({<Month={"<=\$(Max(Month))"}>}Amount)      // If month is created in the script using month() function, it should work.

## Re: Calculate sum based onCurrent selection date.

Try something like:

Sum({<Date={"<=\$(Max(Date))"}>}Amount)  // assuming Date field is there. Otherwise there would be couple of things to be careful of, like if you want single year data or all the months from last years as well; date format. Best would be if you could share sample app.

selection field has only month name and year. year (2011,2012,2013) and month name from Jan to dec.

Ex:  If I select year= 2011 and month name = 'Apr''

Then I want sum of amt  from Jan to Apr for year 2011

Hi

use this expression ,its working fine.

sum({<datefield={"<=\$(=only(datefield))"}>}amount)

or

if u need to use upto current date,if u have year ,quarter ,month fields then use below condition

sum({<datefield={"<=\$(=only(datefield))"},year=,quarter=,month= >}amount)

this expression gives up to current month
