4.19. Number of Periods to Forecast in Time Series

Applies to: @RISK 6.x/7.x, Industrial Edition

In time series fitting, when I click Write to Cells, @RISK gives me a default array of 24 cells. Can I change the default number of periods that time series will project into the future?

Yes, you can. In Utilities » Application Settings, expand the section "Time Series Graph Defaults". The last item, "Num. Default Data Points", tells the time series fit how many periods to forecast past the end of your historical data. You can still change this when you do any particular fit.
