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

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