### Example

The following sample formula creates a measure that calculates the 'Quarter End Inventory Value' of the product inventory.

To see how this works, create a PivotTable and add the fields, CalendarYear, CalendarQuarter and MonthNumberOfYear, to the **Row Labels** area of the PivotTable. Then add a measure, named Quarter End Inventory Value, using the formula defined in the code section, to the **Values** area of the PivotTable.

### Code

```
=CLOSINGBALANCEQUARTER(SUMX(ProductInventory,ProductInventory[UnitCost]*ProductInventory[UnitsBalance]),DateTime[DateKey])
```
