Update a running total

MS SQL Server 2008.

I have a table that has the following columns

visitdate date
Eye int
Treatmentcount int
RunningTotal int

where Eye can be null, 1(right) or 2(left).  Null means no treatment on this date.

Treatmentcount can be null, or a number less than 10

The table is ordered desc on Visitdate.

Visit date   Eye           TreatmentCount   RunningTotal
2012-05-01   1              2
2012-04-01                 
2012-03-01   1              4
2012-02-01   1              1

Open in new window

How can i update the RunningTotal column so it shows the total number of treatments at each visit?
Visit date   Eye           TreatmentCount   RunningTotal
2012-05-01   1              2                      7
2012-04-01                 
2012-03-01   1              4                      5
2012-02-01   1              1                      1

Try this if you meant adding totals based on dates
drop table #t
create table #t(visitdate date,
Eye int,
Treatmentcount int,
RunningTotal int)
insert into #t values('2012-05-01',1,2,null)
insert into #t values('2012-04-01',null,null,null)
insert into #t values('2012-03-01',1,4,null)
insert into #t values('2012-02-01',1,1,null)

select visitdate,Eye,Treatmentcount,(select sum(treatmentcount) from #t b where b.Eye=a.Eye and b.visitdate <=a.visitdate) as runningtotal
from #t a

update #t set RunningTotal = (select sum(treatmentcount) from #t b where b.Eye=a.Eye and b.visitdate <=a.visitdate)
from #t a
