I want to ask about seasonal ARIMA (SARIMA) in R function how to determine that time series data has affected or influenced by seasonal pattern
Thank you very much

Pradita, You will need to go beyond auto.arima to find seasonality. If only one period has seasonality(ie June) then auto.arima won't find it. You need to consider more than just seasonal differencing, 11 monthly dummies or an AR12 and consider the possibility for the need of only 1 monthly dummy needing to exist(or maybe 2?). If there is a change in the seasonality(similar concept---Monday is low and then half way into the series Friday's become high) then auto.arima won't find it. If you have an example data set, post it here.
