You must use the FCOPEN function in combination with other OLAP DML statements as outlined in "Forecasting Programs". For additional information about forecasting and forecasting methods, we suggest the latest editions of the books listed in "Further Reading on Forecasting".
The name of the forecasting context.
An INTEGER expression that is the handle to a different forecasting context that was previously-created using the FCOPEN function. Oracle OLAP initializes the new forecasting context with the same options as the forecasting context specified by this parameter. (See FCSET for descriptions of the options that specify the characteristics of a forecasting context.)
