The result is calculated as an average ratio of the account values to another defined account and then indexed by the monthly average of the same month in the previous year, modified by a change in the previous months for a current year and user-defined constant. Adding the function will create a modelling row – Ratio, used for a seasonality calculation.

The user can define only a value for a constant (is not necessary), by which the numbers have changed compared to the previous season.

**How to**

- Select Denominator account as parameter A.

Adding the function will create a modelling row – Turn in days, which is then applied in calculating future values.

The user enters two accounts as parameters B and C, to which is the commitment calculating (parameter C is optional) and the name of the Modelling row, which calculates turn in days during the period.
