sales ,forecast and holtwinters values :combine values into one matrix

Hi to all.
I am trying (hard) to have the summarized output from my code ,shown per row and as a grand total only.
I have learned that would be cbind code into a matrix (values only).

Is there anyone who could helpme with that?
I would need to see my sales ,forecast and Holtwinters values on rowbases in a matrix.

my reprex:

These are all functions for building higher dimensional objects. I have taken the code you posted and modified it a little to show that the first three functions each produces a matrix, which is a two dimensional object and data.frame, obviously, makes a data frame. A data frame is typically two dimensional. The biggest difference between a matrix and a data frame is that a matrix must contain only one type of data but a data frame can mix types such as the numbers and characters in this example.

#cbind(a, b, c) Combine vectors as columns in a matrix 
FIRST <- cbind(1:5, 6:10, 11:15)

#> [5,]    5   10   15

#rbind(a, b, c) Combine vectors as rows in a matrix 
SECOND <- rbind(1:5, 6:10, 11:15)

#> [3,]   11   12   13   14   15

#> [1] "matrix"
#matrix(x, nrow, ncol, byrow) Create a matrix from a vector x 
THIRD <- matrix(data = 1:12, nrow = 3, ncol = 4)

#> [1,]    1    4    7   10

Your example returns many errors but rather than try to fix that, let's aim for a simpler goal. Are you successfully calculating the forecast, alpha, beta and gamma? In your reprex they are all NA but that might be due to the reprex process. If you do get the desired values, how are they organized? If you could just show a small example of the structure, that would be very helpful. Please also show the format that you want them in finally.

The examples do not have to be your actual calculations. It is fine to invent a small set of data that just shows the organization of your results. You can use the data.frame function to make the examples.

Hi , great .I understand what i i need now.: a matrix
If the reprex is run in Rstudio ,it shows you forecast values , but also Holtwinters Alpha,Beta and Gamma values.(ABG values)
**I am trying to get a combined matrix with my sales values and forecast values with the respective ABG in one simple matrix row wise, .Which matrix function do i need to use you think?

I have my reprex for you :Can you help me showing what code i would need??

Hi ,I agree with your approach and I am very happy you want to teach me this.
STEP 1 Before I move on with anything else : Basically I only need a matrix with values calculated based on sales.
The below shows my goal: a matrix based on values.No characters.

with regards t your questions:
1.Are you successfully calculating the forecast, alpha, beta and gamma. Answer:Not sure.My code generates alpha ,beta and gamma for the whole cumulative series of observations.
I need it on a row basis.
2.What format do i need? Answer: a simple matrix (numeric values)

STEP 2 : My code needs adjusting ?
I look forward to your advise.I hope this is not an overflow of information and I gave the correct answers.

I am sorry I gave you the wrong impression about what I can help you with. If you had the values you need but needed to reshape them into a matrix, I could help you with that. I cannot help you with Holt Winters processing of data. To get help with that, you should start a thread with Holt Winters in the title. This thread only mentions cbind in the title and that will not attract the attention of the right people.

Also, please adjust your reprex in that thread so it does not throw errors.
