How can I forecast over multiple months in Proc ESM in SAS 9.3?

in OHere is my set up:

Proc ESM data = cwork.forecastworked out = forecastedworked Lead = 1;

by clientname;

ID Mon_1_1_YY interval = month accumulate = average;

forecast totalaccts;

run;

I know I can change Lead = 1 to say Lead = 4 or 5 or 6 to get months more than 1 ...

My id variable is a month variable so i'm good there.

I am storing about 6 months of data for history....what happens is that it does forecast all the months I ask for but gives the same value  for each month of that of the first forecasted value...is it because Im not giving it enough historiy?

Hopefully im clear enough on my concern....thanks,.
