Re: About Exponential smoothing time interval

Hi,

I'm a bit confused to your reference to a "node". Which application are you using? SAS Enterprise Miner?

Usually the default weekend is Saturday and Sunday. However, this can be changed if you use the weekday67w interval. The 6 is the Friday and the 7 is the Saturday.

Thanks,

Snurre

Which version are you on?

You should be able to change that in the Time Series Exponential Smoothing Train Properties. There is an option to specify the time series interval.

Do you know this EM tip - https://communities.sas.com/docs/DOC-10125 ?

Near the end you there is a discussion on the exp smoothing node which also shows some of the options. Here you need to change the "interval" option.
