Week Coverage, also known as forward coverage or stock cover
A description of the enhancement requested
Week Coverage, also known as forward coverage or stock cover.
As an example we have Forecast Sales and Current Stock.
Formula should calculate how many future periods of forecast will be covered by Current stock.
This is achievable in Anaplan with below function:
Look Forward + (Stock - MOVINGSUM(Forecast Sales, 1, Look Forward, SUM)) / OFFSET(Forecast Sales, Look Forward + 1, 0)
"Look Forward" is a list item of number format where you give the number of value to look forward.
The formula is complicated, and MOVINGSUM only accepts time dimension.
