Awful solution I know but it kind of works for a small number of categories. (I look forward to a better solution)

if(RowNo()=1,sum(Amount),

if(RowNo()=3,sum(Amount)+(above(sum (Amount),2))+above(sum(Amount)),

if(RowNo()=2,sum(Amount)+above(sum(Amount)),

if(RowNo()=4,sum(Amount)+(above(sum (Amount),2))+above(sum(Amount))+(above(sum (Amount),3)),

if(RowNo()=5,sum(Amount)+(above(sum (Amount),2))+above(sum(Amount))+(above(sum (Amount),3))

+(above(sum (Amount),4)),

if(RowNo()=6,sum(Amount)+(above(sum (Amount),2))+above(sum(Amount))+(above(sum (Amount),3))

+(above(sum (Amount),4))+(above(sum (Amount),5)),

if(RowNo()=7,sum(Amount)+(above(sum (Amount),2))+above(sum(Amount))+(above(sum (Amount),3))

+(above(sum (Amount),4))+(above(sum (Amount),5))+(above(sum (Amount),6))

,

0)))))))

I have just used (which has worked for me so far for my requirements)

SUM(TOTAL<Category>Amount)

to avoid the above but Im sure there is a much better solution (I just have not been able to work it out yet)

This seems to work too (straight and pIvot tables)

RangeSum (above(sum(Amount),1,RowNo()-1))+sum(Amount))

or

RangeSum (above(sum(Amount),0,RowNo()))

Then I see up a chart straight table (or chart pivot table)

Then I set up

dimensions.

Selected

Category and  item

Expressions

sum (Amount)

SUM(TOTAL<Category>Amount)

RangeSum (above(sum(Amount),0,RowNo()))

You will need to sort in some way to get the order the same as your excel spreadsheet

I think this will work. I have done similar at work (I use sum total category) or need to do similar whihc I will use range sum etc
