it is not clear about the forecast forward period determination. in the lesson 5-25: Add a trend line, I put 4 for 2014 year from 2008. So, how can I determine the no:4 for 6 years. please see the attachment as well.

Hi Raju,


I'm afraid your attachment didn't come through; click here for instructions on attaching files.


In lesson 5-25, you create a trend line to predict the next 4 years. If you wanted to predict 6 years, you'd just need to set the Forward forecast option to 6 instead of 4.


This probably isn't what you're asking, so please reply with more details and attach your file if possible and I will take a look.
