I’ve received several questions recently about forecasting future values in TIBCO Spotfire. Forecasting in Spotfire can be tricky because it’s hard to add rows to your data table.

In this video, I’ll show you how to assign a color to a document property to make the document property update not only the values on a chart, but also the color.Click here to download the Spotfire file shown in the screenshot!
