Does FS generates different event for two events falling on the same day?

Hi,

I'm using events in my project and have 2 events that occur on the same day,

in manual software I've been using I would put interaction parameter (Event1 * Event2),

Does SAS FS do that?

thanks for any reply,

Does FS generates different event for two events falling on the same day?

Hello -

SAS Forecast Server basically deploys the HPFEVENTS procedure for event handling. This procedure provides you with a very powerful way to deal with different types of events, including combination events.

Check out this example: http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/hpfug/63959/HTML/default/viewer.htm#hpfug_hpfevents_sect... as a first step.

What you will find is that SAS Forecast Studio provides a way to set up so-called event repositories using point and click - at the end of the day HPFEVENTS code gets created behind the scenes.

Hope this helps,

Udo
