    Yes, you can create a cumulative line chart. To do so, you:
    - Create a parent table to the table with the data points
    - Add a summary field to the parent table to total the data in the child table
    - Pass the summary field back to the child table
    - Create a snapshot field in the child table to hold and lock the summary field you passed back
    - Create a formula field in the child table that add the data point to the snapshot field.

    This is ridiculously complex. QBase should implement a simple method.

    I'm confused about the sequence of this post, somehow Matt responded before your "complaint".  Anyways, I agree with Matt, Waterfall charts are great for cumulative and they are very stupid simple to set up, and I'm all about stupid simple wherever possible.

    You can now also use the new Waterfall charts
