essbase Forecasting Functions

Forecasting functions manipulate data for the purpose of smoothing,
interpolating, or calculating future values. Forecasting functions are often
used in planning, analysis, and modeling applications. Some forecasting functions
recognize the optional Range List Parameters rangeList
or XrangeList).

Function Data Manipulation
@MOVAVG Applies a moving average to a data set, replacing each term in the
list with a trailing average. This function modifies the data set for smoothing
purposes.
@MOVMAX Applies a moving maximum to a data set, replacing each term in the
list with a trailing maximum. This function modifies the data set for smoothing
purposes.
@MOVMED Applies a moving median to a data set, replacing each term in the list
with a trailing median. This function modifies the data set for smoothing
purposes.
@MOVMIN Applies a moving minimum to a data set, replacing each term in the
list with a trailing minimum. This function modifies the data set for smoothing
purposes.
@MOVSUM Applies a moving sum to a data set. This function modifies the data
set for smoothing purposes.
@MOVSUMX Applies a moving sum to a data set, enabling specification of values
for trailing members. This function modifies the data set for smoothing purposes.
@SPLINE Applies a smoothing spline to a set of data points. A spline is a mathematical
curve that is used to smooth or interpolate data.
@TREND Calculates future values, basing the calculation on curve-fitting to
historical values
