    meaning

    Hi,

    could you please tell me what "running" means in the following sentence? Does it refer to the forecast?

    The distributor shall provide a running six month sales forecast.

    Thanks a lot!

    Dear Hanka:

    It means that the forecast will be continuously updated. It won't be a forecast for a set six months, but will always be an attempt to forecast six months from the current date.

    Best wishes,

    Petra
