Reading historical forecasts


I am using FM MPOP_SINGLE_READ to read forecasts for a material in ECC 6 Retail.

The only problem with it is that it returns only the current forecast results which is generally only for the future.

I would like to be able to return previous forecasts as well so that I can compare a week's consumption against the original forecast for the same week.

Does anyone have some ideas on how I could do this?

I know it keeps forecast history, does someone know how long it keeps it?

    Stupid question or does no-one have a need to read historical forecasts?

    Seems I will be able to create some logic to read the old forecasts, but can't find a simple FM that is able to read it for me.

    Since I need to read a forecast for a specific period I can compare the forecast date against the start date of the period.

    The one closest and in the past should then have the forecast information.

    Unlikely that an older forecast will contain information that a more recent forecast does not.

    It won't be perfect, but it will be pretty close.

    That is one option anyway.

    Might be a bit tricky to get it runtime efficient.
