Single Exponential Smoothing Problem in configuration setting for Date checkbox

Hi,

In SAP Predictive Analysis, when I import data from excel and apply Single Exponential Smoothing algorithm then while entering values in configuration settings I find checkbox for DATE column. [Refer the screenshot]


But, when I tried the same thing for same data using SAP HANA where I want to pass my DATE field (datatype : Date) to algorithm. I haven’t found checkbox for DATE column in configuration setting. [Refer the screenshot]


Looking for expert advice

    Hi,

    I guess its two different ways how to get the Date for the TargetValueColumn.

    The upper one tries to get the information directly from the Date-Column. You gave the information what name the column has and that enough to identify the first element of the Date-Column to know where it starts.

    The Version for Hana requires from you to give the information when the time period starts. So you have to give Start Period and Start Year from the first element of your TargetVariable.

    Hope its helpful and understandable 😊

      For my understanding, that's correct. By your inputinformation you have to make sure, they are correct.

      Its easier coding to create a timeline by the starting date and the periocity, then to identify the first date of the datecolumn (specially cause you need to know the format of the date, to read it correctly).

    I think the question is How we can give Date as a input parameter from HANA system to SAP predictive analysis..we can do the same using excel but the option is missing while doing it with HANA as shown in screenshots.
