Hello <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
Does anyone know a formula to calculate WMAPE – Weighted Mean Absolute Percentage Error? I am currently using the MAPE measure however I am told Weighting the error would give me a more accurate figure as I will be putting more emphasis on the higher volume lines.<o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
My Current Formula for MAPE is as follows;<o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
=IF(AND(SUM(Actual)=0,SUM(Forecast)=0),0,IF( SUM(Actual)=0,100,('Abs Error'/Actual)))<o:p></o:p>
<o:p> </o:p>
