An expression that returns a scalar value.


A column that contains dates.

A scalar value that represents the expression evaluated for the dates in the current month-to-date, given the dates in dates.

The dates argument can be any of the following:

  • A reference to a date/time column.

  • A table expression that returns a single column of date/time values.

  • A Boolean expression that defines a single-column table of date/time values.


Constraints on Boolean expressions are described in the topic, CALCULATE Function (DAX).


The filter expression has restrictions described in the topic, CALCULATE Function (DAX).

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.
