Yet, if I put in a forward estimate for 5 years, does that mean I have to enter 20+ quarters?

The issue is when was the last report and what is the end of your estimate. If the last is say September 2000 and your estimate ends on March 2005 then this is only 18 quarters, while if it was December 2005 it is 21 quarters. If you don't know when the 5 year estimate ends, I'd likely take either 5 years from the time of the report or the end of the 5th fiscal year going out.
