This user property is used when querying the revenue records to pull into the current forecast. The default is to pull in all records in the range specified by the forecast.
This search specification (as well as the Auto and Assoc search specifications) can use special variables as defined in the Forecast Series and Forecast Series Date business components. For example, the default value of the Named Search: Forecast Series Date Range user property is
[Date] >= '&FCST_DATE_LOWER_BOUND' and [Date] <= '&FCST_END_DATE'
which returns values between the Date - Lower Bound field and the End Date field of the Forecast 2000 -- Forecast Series Date business component. In this case the variable &FCST_DATE_LOWER_BOUND represents the Date - Lower Bound field, which is the History View Date if it has a value. If the History View Date does not have a value, the Date - Lower Bound field is the History Edit date if it has a value or the Start Date if the History Edit date does not have a value.
You can inactivate and modify the values for this user property. However, you cannot create new instances of this user property.
NOTE: If you inactivate the Named Search: Forecast Series Date Range user property, you can make sure that the revenues that enter the forecast are limited by date by modifying the Auto and Assoc search specifications of the Forecast Series to include similar criteria.
