Re: problem in downloading .csv file

That warning might be because you haven't saved the process. When using repositories, they like to be relative pathed to the process. Usually it's just a warning but you can run it fine.

Re: problem in downloading .csv file

hello @DrDavid - welcome to the community.  A couple of other things come to my mind...

- you are using a very old version of RapidMiner (ver 5.3) and hence the Decision Tree operator that you're trying to use has been deprecated.  I would highly recommend upgrading to ver 7.6.1 (most recent version) and the new updated decision tree operator.

- I cannot debug the labeling issue as I cannot see the metadata for the hypothyroid.csv example set.  If you could post this as well as your process, that would be helpful.  Often when I build processes, I keep the example sets pretty raw and just use the Set Role operator as part of my process.  Unless you are very concerned about latency, it does not slow you down very much and improved debugging.

- Those yellow triangles occur all the time in RapidMiner.  If you go to the "Problems" pane in the Design mode, you will see why RapidMiner is giving you those triangles and even offer potential solutions.  I will also tell you that sometimes those yellow warning triangles are there and there is nothing wrong, e.g. calling an attribute that you are pulling directly from an xls file so the metadata is not there.


Hope that helps.  And if you can use the </> tool when posting an XML process here on the forum, that also helps people debug problems.  Smiley Happy
