Currently I am working on a Forecasting Project. The problem is as follows:
I have a table, which has 13 fields/columns (one customer name field and 12 every month's field. All together there are 13 fields / columns in that table). I forecast each month's order from each customer for 12 months based on the following formula: Average order of last three months*12/52*4.
If some month (for example towards end of March) customer calls and tells me that in the next two months (example: April and May) the order size would be larger or smaller than that what I have predicted I would go to a form called Order Adjustment Form and update order size for those two months. Now after I have updated, my forecast for the rest of the eleven months (until March in this case because I am using a rolling calendar) is suppose to be changed based on the formula described above. I have not found a way to run query that will update the values from June until March and not effect April and May values.
I have written some update queries but not sure how to apply those. I would really appreciate if someone could help me out.
