Dashboad - Cumulative Sum Line/Bar Chart

    ​​​Hello All,
    New post, I am still learning Cognos Analytics Dashboarding. I would like to create a Line chart with cumulative total. So if the overall yearly total is 1000000,
    I would like to see how the total increased over the 12 months in the year.
    I used to use Report Studio and I used the running total function for list reports but not for charts.
    Can someone point me how I can emplement this for charts in Cognos Analytics.
    My base data is a dataset.

    Thanks in advance for your help,

    Try making a Data Module . Create a new calculation with running total function. Then make a dashboard . Use this Data Module to create dashboard . I have not tried this personally, but I think, it should work. Give it a try & let me know.

    Thanks, Madhuri
