Software : Business : Finance : Multiple Regression Analysis and Forecasting

The Multiple Regression Analysis and Forecasting template provides a solid basis for identifying value drivers and forecasting time series data. While it utilises a range of commonly employed statistical measures to test the validity of the analysis, results are summarized in text for ease of use. Once relationships have been identified, forecasting can be accomplished based on a range of available methodologies. The intuitive step-by-step usage flow enables you to develop strong forecasts for your projects in a timely manner.


The Multiple Regression Analysis and Forecasting template by Excel Business Tools

Key features of the Multiple Regression Analysis and Forecasting template include:


What version of Excel do I need?
All templates are compatible with Microsoft Excel 97 or above.

How can I open the download files?
The download files are "zipped" to to minimise the file size. You will need some extraction software like Winzip to open them on your computer once they are downloaded.

Why can't I see all of the cell formulas?
The worksheets are protected to ensure the robustness of operation. However, critical formulas are outlined in the embedded help prompts.

When I open the file, it asks me if I want to enable macros. What should I do?
You need to click "Yes" to accept macros in order to run the tools.

When I open the file, it doesn't ask me if I want to enable macros. Therefore, the macros are disabled. What should I do?
In this case you need to set your macro security settings to Medium. You can do this by opening a blank workbook and choosing Tools >> Options >> Security >> Macro Security, and selecting the Medium level. You should now be presented with the option to enable macros on opening the template file.

Why can't I see the VBA code?
The VBA code has been protected to ensure the robustness of operation and for intellectual property purposes.

Can other users open the models that I have completed?
When other users open the model for the first time on another computer, they are presented with the 30-day trial version. After 30 days, if they have not registered the model, they will still be able to view completed models, but not run processes. In this way, the templates can be freely distributed to clients and/or interested parties to view results.

I want to customize a model for my own use or to distribute it to multiple users in my organization. What are my options?
Upon purchasing the products, you will receive the password to unlock cells, sheets, and the workbook. Since much of the functionality depends on the original workbook structure, modifications made are at the sole risk of the user. Site licenses are available on purchase so that the model can be registered for an unlimited number of users within the same organization.

An updated version of a model is available on your site. How can I upgrade my older registered version?
You can simply download the new version and it will work as a registered version on the same computers that you have your older version on.

I want to forecast my financials, but where do I start?
The first goal of forecasting variables with multiple regression is the identification of the value drivers with the strongest relationship to your desired forecast variable. In order to do this you must first determine what data exists that you can attain to try in the model. This might include macro-economic data, volumes, prices, or other financial time-series data.

Why is the number of independent variables limited to ten?
The number of independent variables that can be run is limited to ten in order to maintain reasonable processing times on slower computers. It is unusual to have more than ten independent variables that all hold a strong relationship to the dependent variable, without there being any multi-colinearity between them.

Why should I ensure all statistical tests are met before running my forecast?
By satisfying the key statistical tests, when testing the relationships of your data, the validity of you forecast will be much stronger. This, in turn, can help you better understand what the true value drivers of your business are, and can improve business case quality.

I want to copy use my forecast results into another model, but I want them to read across the page, not down. How can I do this?
You can copy your forecast results and then after selecting the first destination cell in your other model, choose Paste Special, then check the Values and Transpose boxes to paste the values across the page.

I want to convert my forecast time series to a higher frequency (like from months to years). How can I do this?
You can convert you forecast time series into a different frequency by creating a pivot table report of the forecast data and corresponding date information. In your pivot table, you can right-click the date dimension, and choose Group and Outline, then Group to transform the data into a higher time frequency.
