Why do I get the "One or more seasonal indices equals 0" message in Winters' Method?

Minitab displays this error message when all values for a season are zero. For example, you might have quarterly data with each value for spring equal to zero. Change at least one of the zeros to very a small number (such as 0.000001) to avoid this error.
