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

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