Enter data for one account as a percent of another account (Associated Account) in the same period. For example, for Cost of Goods Sold as 46% of Sales, enter 46 for the forecast period input.
If you select this option, you must specify the Associated Account specified in the Forecast Method dialog.
When calculating an account, you may get a message that says you can not use the Associated Account specified because it is calculated after the main account. For example, to enter Cash as a percentage of Total Assets, you must use the forecast method called Percent of Prior Period Account.
