This function returns all dates in the next year, based on the first date in the input column. For example, if the first date in the dates column refers to the year 2007, this function returns all dates for the year 2008.

The dates argument can be any of the following:

  • A reference to a date/time column.

  • A table expression that returns a single column of date/time values.

  • A Boolean expression that defines a single-column table of date/time values.


Constraints on Boolean expressions are described in the topic, CALCULATE Function (DAX).

The year_end_date parameter is a string literal of a date, in the same locale as the locale of the client where the workbook was created. The year portion of the date is ignored.


The following sample formula creates a measure that calculates the 'next year sales' for the Internet sales.

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

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