Forecast Errors

Hi Experts

When i generate forecast all the Errors are also generated in the following way..

MAD 562,33.10

MAPE 10002,22.0


MSE 3100,229.999

RMSE 13.23

Here i am unable to find out the wat is commas and decimal in the error values.

Wat is Comma and Decimal point in the above errors.

2)When i manually check the Error total as per the formula in the SAP HELP the results are not matching.

Please give your valuable suggestion on the Forecasting errors.

If your user setting has "Decimal Notation" in the format 1,234.567,98

then your error as shown in APO system MAD 562,33.10

is actually 562.3310.

A value of 1 would be shown in APO as 1,000

A value of 1.2 would be shown in APO as 1,2
