    pivot table cumulative sum

    onur yilmaz

      Hello everyone,


      I am trying to calculate cumulative sum in a pivot table in Qlik Sense.


      My row is Year; (2018,2017,2016...)

      My columns are Month(Jan,Feb...) and Scenario_(Actual,Plan)

      My measure is sum of Amount_


      Data sample is below:




      What I want is, Amount_ values should be cumulatively summed in pivot table for the 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.


      I have tried "=RangeSum(Above(Sum(AMOUNT_), 0, RowNo()))" but it did not work.


      For now, I have below pivot table.



      Please suggest me any solution if anyone of you gone through the same problem. Any help will be appreciated.

          your expression is correct.


          can you attach sample data ? the QVF ?

              result of "=RangeSum(Above(Sum({1}AMOUNT_), 0, RowNo()))" is below, it is not what I want.

                  here I applied your expression with your data and it seems good.


                  screen rangesum.png


                  I think your problem is related to the type of sorting of the field Year (asc/desc).


                  If you put the sorting of the year on descending, it will start to calculate the range from the latest year.


                  you need maybe to put the sorting on ascending ?

                    Hi, I think I have fixed it, I have add one more measure


                    now two measures like below:

                    for Actuals:


                    for plans:



                    result is below:Screenshot_2.png

                  Hi Onur,


                  You just need to use RangeSum(Before(Sum(AMOUNT_), 0, ColumnNo())) as measure on your pivot table. If you want to get running sum on horizantal, you have to use Before() instead of Above()  and ColumnNo() instead of RowNo(). Above() and RowNo() can be used for vertical running sums.


                  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.

                  I am not pretty sure about your actual need but if you want to show sum of Jan and Feb on Mar Column (except Mar value). you need to

                  edit this expression.


                  RangeSum(Before(Sum(AMOUNT_), 1, ColumnNo()))





                  Hope it helps,
