    Missing months in serial prediction

    Please go to our GUI client/Serials, and look for Forbes (000084564), when you go to Patterns, you will see that the prediction that has been done, starts with v.181:no.1 (2008:Jan) but immediately jump to v.181:no.2 (2008:Nov). All issues between January and November are not appearing. What's wrong with this prediction pattern?

    If this is a bi-weekly, you will need more than the two level of chronology here. A second level of chronology of month allows only 12 issues. What are the actualy chronologies on the first couple of issues of 2008? I looked at the Forbes web site and see that they publish 26 issues a year. I'm guessing this means one every two weeks.

    I think they may just actual dates for their issues. If the first issue in January is Jan. 10, for example, try this configuration in your HOL:

    Change 853 $$u to 26
    Add 853 $$k with value (day)
    Add 853X $$k with value 10 (just an example)
