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 Quarter Sales, using the formula defined in the code section to the **Values** area of the PivotTable.

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