Consider the following table definition:

CREATE TABLE sales_intervals 
   ( sdate DATE
   , sinterval INTERVAL MONTH
   , stotals DECIMAL(5,0));

The following query uses CAST to convert INTERVAL MONTH values in the sinterval column to INTEGER.

SELECT stotals,
   (EXTRACT (MONTH FROM sdate)) + (CAST(sinterval AS INTEGER))
FROM sales_intervals;
