It happend to me several times that in 'Modeling View' I have certain graph in the 'Historical and Forecast Region' and it differs from the graph that I have in the 'Forecasting View'. I understand that this could happen when the model selected in the 'Modeling View' it's not the 'forecast model', but, how can this happen if I select the 'forecast model'?
I'm using FS 12.1.
Thanks in advanced,

This may happen if you are using a hierarchy and reconciliation.
In the modeling view you see information before your hierarchy is reconciled. Basically it shows you which models were considered and which model was chosen.
In the forecasting view you will see the impact of running reconciliation - which basically makes sure that the numbers add up across a hierarchy.
You can overlay the forecasting model plot by selecting "View -> Edit Forecasting View Properties" and check "Selected model":
This will allow you to visualize the impact of reconciliation.
