How to export the correlation matrix results?

I made a correlation matrix, and attributes weight list, However, I found I can not  export the list to a excel file, the only possible is a jpg file as current winodw?  Besides, I am really eager of RM 5.0 manual, otherwise I have to start to learn german to read the german version  :'(

Re: How to export the correlation matrix as Excel file

Hi funnyhat,

learning German is definitely an option. However, here is some help now: you can export the correlation matrix by generating a report and write the report to an Excel file. Sounds complicated but is not. The process below shows you how to do this.

Due to your request we also found a tiny bug. Unfortunatly you'll need to close RM to open the written report Excel file without a write protection. This bug is fixed in the svn repository version now and the fix will be part of the next RM update.

Thanks!! you are always so helpful.

Re: How to export the correlation matrix results?

It seems that this bug also appears in version 6. If I let RM write a report it cannot be opened while running the same process again.
However, this is still a work-around. An operator which can handle matrix elements would be sooo handy Smiley Happy

EDIT: Even more weird... I tried it a second time with exactely the same setup and now it works?!? Well, seems that the rootcause was probably something else with my computer. However, I still consider an operator to process matrix elements is still an important feature.

Hi,

 

Seems that this little bug is still in version 7: I have to end the process first before I can access the report file Smiley Sad

Re: How to export the correlation matrix as Excel file

Hallo unvergessbar,

 

schön dich im Forum zu haben!

 

we have created a new operator called Matrix to Exampleset which is available in the Converters Extension. This makes your life easier Smiley Happy.

Best,
