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, create a measure to calculate the running total sum for sales.
YTDSales = TOTALYTD(SUM('Global-Superstore'[Sales]), 'Calendar'[Date])
Step-4: Drag YTDSales measure and Year & Month columns from Calendar table & Sales from Global-Superstore table.
As you see in above screen shot it returns the running total for Year 2011 & 2012 sales separately.
