A column expression that defines the in dependent variable for calculating the linear regression.

For example, MLINREG(Sales, 6, Fiscal_Year_Month ASC), where Sales is the value_expression, 6 is the width, and Fiscal_Year_Month ASC is the sort_expression.

The data type of the column reference must be numeric or a data type that Teradata Database can successfully convert implicitly to numeric.
