I have Date, Category and Qty in my data.
Category has n different types.

Although i'm able to forecast Qty, using just Date.
I would want to include Category in the forecast, so i do not have to load n different files to separate one category at a time.
I'm new to R and any guidance is highly appreciated.
Please advise.

HI,
Below is what i'm using without including 'category' variable.
I would want to do a time series forecast with category variable included as above sample data set mentioned.

Y <- ts(df[,2], start = c(2019,2), frequency = 330)

Hi all,
I'm trying to use Time series forecast for multiple columns at the same time...
Using below code..But it is giving same value for all future dates. Can someone please help?
