## Example

The following sample formula creates a measure that calculates the 'month running total' or 'month running sum' for the Internet sales.

To see how this works, create a PivotTable and add the fields, CalendarYear, MonthNumberOfYear and DayNumberOfMonth, to the **Row Labels** area of the PivotTable. Then add a measure, named **Month-to-date Total**, using the formula defined in the code section, to the **Values** area of the PivotTable.

## Code

```
=TOTALMTD(SUM(InternetSales_USD[SalesAmount_USD]),DateTime[DateKey])
```
