Returns the member that is a specified number of positions following a specified member along the dimension of the member.

«Member».**Lead**(«Numeric Expression»)

Member positions in the dimension are determined by the dimension's natural order. The numbering of the positions is zero-based.

If «Numeric Expression» is zero, «Member» is returned. If «Numeric Expression» is negative, a prior member is returned.

**Lead**(1) is equivalent to **NextMember**. **Lead**(-1) is
equivalent to **PrevMember**.

The «Member»**.Lag **function is similar, except that it looks in the
opposite direction. **Lead**(*n*) is equivalent to
**Lag**(-*n*).

If the levels in the Time dimension include Year and Month, the following
example returns `[1995].February`

:

```
[1994].November.Lead(3)
