I was wondering if you could help me. I have 5 years worth of sales for each month. I think seasonal variability has a big influence on sales prediction and i also have records of temperature the past few years. I was wondering what is the best to use for prediction .i.e. windowing???

My dataset looks like this

1.                          2.                      3.                4.                        5.
Month/Year          Sales Figure      Region        Temperature        Rainfall if possible

Could you please guide me here?

    for predicting time series windowing is the most often used approach. All operators necessary are available in the Series Processing Extension. For a detailed explanation, you might visit one of our webinars or seminars.
