Forecast: Moving Average (Variable)

Hi Everybody!

I'm working on a forecast planning and I have a problem with the standar "Moving Average" formula.

I have a multiprovider that contains the plan and the real provider, in the real, a year of history is loaded, I have a planning secuence in which two functions are called: 1) a copy function for copying the historic data to the plan cube, and 2) the forecast function (moving average) with the following parameters:

- Forecast Period: the variable 0FISCPER, with these, the final user indicate the period he wants to plan

- Past Period: the variable 0FISCPER - 12

- Historic Data Filter: empty

- Historic Key Figure: ZNETWGBIL the key figure that is gonna be changed by the function

- Forecast Strategy: Media Variable

- Order: 3

It executes the copying function correctly, but it doesn't do ANYTHING for the forecast function. If change just the Forecast Strategy to "average" or any other, it do it correctly and in the plan cube the records of the copy and the ones for the forecast whit the key figure changed appropriately are created.

The problem is that I need to user Moving Average.

I'll really apreciate any help.

Thnks in advance.
