I have a transactional data set which I processed in enterprise guide with the task create time series in order to have the time series as is needed for forecast server, regarding the time ID variable, it came in format DDMMMYYYY and that is how it is exported after the workflow, I assign Day interval with the default settings. The format of the date variable of the table I will use in Forecast is as follows:
Reading format DDMMYY10.
But when I identify it in the forecast TimeID it says that there are few recordings of the variable and cant read it.
How can I make it read it?
I made a couple of samples with different forms of data and it turns out that the date should be:
1. The first column in the data set
2. It must not have date gaps
3. The complete date series must by unique in date (all values and breakdows must be aggregated by date before loading to forecast)
If I am mistaken feel free to correct me, but so far I think this was the problem
Thanks anyways 🙂
