Dependencies and Limitations

The Forecast business components are tightly integrated together. The business components that start with Forecast 2000 are heavily dependent on each other. Even small changes can lead to many unexpected behaviors. The Revenue business component is also tied into this, so be careful when making changes to the Revenue business component.

The Forecast 2000 -- Forecast Item business component is used internally by the forecast engine, while the Forecast 2000 -- Forecast Item DynCol business component is used to display the Forecast Details spreadsheet. Each record in the Forecast Item DynCol business component corresponds to a row in the spreadsheet, with the child forecast details forming the dynamic columns (for example, dates). For information on the Dynamic Columns user properties, see Siebel Forecasting Guide.
