Predicts future sequence values for a specified set of sequence data.


PredictSequence(<table column reference>)  
PredictSequence(\<table column reference, n>)  
PredictSequence(\<table column reference, n-start, n-end>)  

Return Type

A <table expression>.


If the n parameter is specified, it returns the following values:

  • If n is greater than zero, the most likely sequence values in the next n steps.

  • If both n-start and n-end are specified, the sequence values from n-start to n-end.


The following example returns a sequence of the five products that are most likely to be purchased by a customer in the Adventure Works DW Multidimensional 2012 database based on the Sequence Clustering mining model.
