A table containing a single column of date values.

This function returns all dates in the next quarter, based on the first date in the input parameter. For example, if the first date in the dates column refers to June 10, 2009, this function returns all dates for the quarter July to September, 2009.

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.

Note Note

This DAX function is not supported for use in DirectQuery mode. For more information about limitations in DirectQuery models, see  http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=219172.

The following sample formula creates a measure that calculates the 'next quarter 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 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]))
