Graph using cumulative data but only showing the last 5 years

Need Help. I have a bar graph that is giving me 10 years worth of contributions but on the graph I only want to show the last 5 years. Along with the contributions made prior to the 5 years

I have tried the top N but this gives me the top 5 years of contributions which may not be within the last 5 years and it also does not order them by Year End Date in ascending order.
I have tried writing a formula to give me just the last 5 years but this does not include the total contribution just what happened in the last 5 years.
I have also created a subreport passed the data for the first 5 years to the subreport as either a shared var of a parameter then tried to add this number to the contributions for the last 5 years with should work.  But then I can't graph on this number.

Thanks in advance for your help.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try this

Create a formula
If Year({DateField}) < Year(currentDate) - 5 then
   Date(Year(CurrentDate) - 6, 1, 1)

Use that for the chart.

That should combine the records for the first 5 years into one date 1 Jan 2009 and leave the rest of the data alone.
