I have one attribute named ‘rental time’ contain 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 years of data sets of this format like “Mon Jan 14 07:32:30 CET 2008”. I want to apply filter for exclude 2008 and 2009 data. How should I apply filter in rapid miner to exclude this data.

I would be grateful to you.

Best regards,

    in RapidMiner Studio 6 this is very easy: Just add a "Filter Examples" operator, and add one condition which says "date < 01/01/2008" and a second condition which says "date > 12/31/2009", set the filters to "Match any" and you are done. You don't even need to enter this yourself, you can use the new filter GUI to do so ;)
