12 Month running total with SSRS

My manager wishes to see a 12 month running total on a ssrs chart. I see the running average on the data series option but do not see a running total (or 12 month running total for that matter). Can this be added? We use SQL 2012 with SQl Server Data Tools 2013.

Also, the data exist in a sharepoint list so if there is a way to add a calculated column on the list that shows 12 month rolling sum, then that would work as well

Thanks

If you are grouping by months you could try this in the Code tab of your report.

This goes in your code tab area..

 Public Dim OldNum As String = Nothing
  Public Function RunningTotal(ByVal BatchNum As Integer,ByVal BatchPdAmt As Decimal) As Object
        Static BatchTotal As Decimal
        If BatchNum <> OldNum Then
            BatchTotal += BatchPdAmt
        End If
        OldNum = BatchNum
        Return BatchTotal
    End Function

This goes into total textbox area...
=Code.RunningTotal(Fields!BatchNum.value, Fields!BatchPdAmt.value)

This  sample I use for batch groups, So you will needt to change it to Months groups and amounts.

I haven't tested it but I think you can do this by using the RunningValue function:

Use this in the values expression of your chart.

Couldn't get it to work. Thankfully, my manager decided to use the moving average that was built in so there is no need for it now. Thanks
