### Time-dating the X-axis when doing forecasting with ARIMA

Hi all,

I’m struggling with time-dating the x-axis. In connection to estimation and plotting the ARIMA-model (monthly data) I run into some trouble with time dating the x-axis. I use the order ~~“GRAPHFORCE”, ~~“GRAPHFORC”, and Shazam generates a nice plot which I can edit. But I do not find out how to time date the x-axis (which is the time-axis when doing this kind of analysis). The default-plot shows only an x-axis with numbers; 1, 2, ,,,etc. Frustrating when we prefer months and years on the axis? Well, I use monthly data, and I wonder; is it possible to include any suitable set-options in the “edit graph source” (or an alternative way) to solve the problem? Let’s say the observed data cover the period March 2003 to April 2013, and the forecast period ends the axis at January 2019.

Ps. The option “PREDICT” does not function when you want to store the forecast-values.
