NullPointerException when doing logistic regression wrapped under Binary2Poly


NullPointerException when doing logistic regression wrapped under Binary2Poly

I am working on Rapid Miner to do some analysis for my master's thesis and I am badly stuck when I try to implement logistic regression wrapped under Polynomial to Binomial Classification. My dataset has 3 classes. It has 12 attributes, 532 rows. I have specified the name(of movies) as id, and the class as Label. Except for these two, all other attributes are numeric.
When I try to run the program, I get an error as below:
SEVERE: Here:          Process[1] (Process)
          subprocess 'Main Process'
            +- Retrieve[1] (Retrieve)
            +- Validation[1] (X-Validation)
          subprocess 'Training'
                |  +- Polynominal by Binominal Classification[1] (Polynominal by Binominal Classification)
          subprocess 'Learning Process'
                |        +- Replace Missing Values[3] (Replace Missing Values)
                |        +- Logistic Regression[3] (Logistic Regression)
          subprocess 'Testing'

Can you tell me where is the problem occuring?

I need urgent help. Please help me. Thanks in advance.
