RUNNING_SUM(SUM([Hours Spent]))


RUNNING_SUM({aggregation method}(numerical expression))

A running sum is the summation of a sequence of numbers which is updated each time a new number is added to the sequence, by adding the value of the new number to the previous running value.

aggregation method: Any aggregation function SUM, MAX, COUNT and etc applied to numeric expression.

numerical expression: Basic arithmetic calculation created using the math operators +, -, *, /, numerical data fields and constants.

For example we have the data set below after applying aggregation COUNT([ID]) to income record set


Applying RUNNING_SUM(COUNT([ID])) will give the table below

25 + 35 = 40
340 + 25 = 65
