I forecast debt levels as small part of my job. This is a task I have inherited. I use a time series and dependant on which time of debt levels I am forecasting, I may need to drag one of various options into the Y, time series, update the forecast periods and press ok. Up until now this has worked perfectly. I am now having an issue where one particular column will not drag into the Y time series. I have tried double clicking but still the one column is unable to be dragged. I cannot drag this into the Y, time series, input list or X, Time ID but I can drag into the By column. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Without actually seeing the data table it's hard for me to come up with a root cause. Generally speaking, JMP analysis platform specification windows have some level of mistake proofing built into the interface. For example; Sometimes you'll see "required numeric" or "optional numeric" in a specification roles window. Perhaps somehow the data type of the column you are trying to drag/place in the window is not allowed within the Time Series platform window?
Can you post the data table so we can take a look at it?
