Struck in CSum

Struck in CSum

(OP)
Hello,
        I am struggling with Cumulative Sum in MicroStrategy based on combination of two attributes say BranchID and Date and also with CityId and Date i.e. i want to sum based on
ascending order of date.
 
This is the data I have:

BranchID    City        Date        Amount    
________________________________________________________

B1        C1        1/13/02        150    
B1        C1        1/14/02        150    
B1        C2        1/14/02        650    
B2        C1        1/15/02        300    
B2        C2        1/18/02        500    
B2        C2        1/19/02        500    
B3        C1        1/18/02        450
B3        C2        1/16/02        450

I am looking for a report like this with csum based on asc order of branch and date

BranchID    Date        Amount        CSum
________________________________________________________

B1        1/13/02        150        150
B1        1/14/02        800        950

B2        1/15/02        300        300
B2        1/18/02        500        800
B2        1/19/02        500        1300

B3        1/16/02        450        450
B3        1/18/02        450        900

i also want to do csum based on asc order of branch, city and date


BranchID    City        Date        Amount        CSum
____________________________________________________________________

B1        C1        1/13/02        150        150
B1        C1        1/14/02        150        300
B1        C2        1/14/02        650          650

B2        C1        1/15/02        300        300
B2        C2        1/15/02        500        500
B2        C2        1/18/02        500        1000

B3        C1        1/16/02        450        450    
B3        C2        1/18/02        450        450

Thanks

RE: Struck in CSum

when you are in the metric editor, highlight the runningsum in the definition and rightmouseclick, select parameters.  You'll see a break by tab and a sort by tab.

for break-by select branch

and do the same for your sort by.  

You'll see it, it's quite intuitive, just hard to find.

RE: Struck in CSum

Dear gauge,
Another solution is to create a MTD (month to date) transformation table and add it to the metric.
However I thing that nlim solution is more polite.

Sincerely,
Humberto Seiji Fukuda
