Evaluates the value of the expression for the month to date, in the current context. It’s comes under Time Intelligence Dax function category.
|1||expression||An expression that returns a scalar value.|
|2||date||A column that contains dates.|
|3||filter||(optional) An expression that specifies a filter to apply to the current context.|
So, Let’s start with an example, download the sample Dataset from below link
Step-1: Create a calendar table to using existing dataset “Order Date” column.
Go to Modeling Tab > Click to table icon & write below DAX
Calendar = CALENDAR(MIN('Global-Superstore'[Order Date]), MAX('Global-Superstore'[Order Date]))
Step-2: After that create a relationship between both table.
Step-3: Now, creates a measure to calculate the ‘month running total’ or ‘month running sum’ for sales.
MTDSales = TOTALMTD(SUM('Global-Superstore'[Sales]), 'Calendar'[Date])
Step-4: Drag MTDSales measure and Year, Month column from Calendar table & Sales from Global-Superstore table.
As you see in above screen shot it returns the month running total for January Month sales & for next month it will start sales summation from the beginning.
