The following sample formula creates a measure that calculates the 'Month To Date Total' for the Internet sales.

To see how this works, create a PivotTable and add the fields, CalendarYear, MonthNumberOfYear and DayNumberOfMonth, to the Row Labels area of the PivotTable. Then add a measure, named Month To Date Total, using the formula defined in the code section, to the Values area of the PivotTable.

=CALCULATE(SUM(InternetSales_USD[SalesAmount_USD]), DATESMTD(DateTime[DateKey]))
