I've looked around but haven't found a decent way to write "running total" like in the following table.

Snailpane > Thanks for the link but I had looked it up there but 現在時点までの合計額 doesn't look good as a table heading. – paullb Nov 13 '12 at 5:24

I think you can try using:

  • 累積合計 - cumulative sum
  • 中間結果 - interim result (in your case a sum)

累積合計 : perfect. Thanks!! – paullb Nov 13 '12 at 5:24
FYI: It also gets used for accumulated interest or income in the financial world. – Tim Nov 13 '12 at 11:56
