A client has credits for "increasing" R&D costs dating back to 2001. There has been insufficient income to absorb all the credits. Is there a limit to how many years these credits can be rolled forward?

Looked at section 174 as well as instructions to form 6765 and don't see any discussion as to whether there is a time limit. Form 6765 addresses current year only and thus is not relevant to this discussion.

Responses are appreciated.
