HI All,
I face a problem in how can i save the output of the clustering process to Excel file,
i used ,
1) Process document from files, inside it tokenize process.
2) Clustering process
3) then write to Excel file.
Please have a look to this,
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<process version="5.3.013">
  <operator activated="true" class="process" compatibility="5.3.013" expanded="true" name="Process">
    <process expanded="true">
      <operator activated="true" class="text:process_document_from_file" compatibility="5.3.000" expanded="true" height="76" name="Process Documents from Files" width="90" x="179" y="300">
        <list key="text_directories">
          <parameter key="dddd" value="C:\Users\UiTm\Desktop\My Articles August 2013\5 VSM Implementation\1 TOOLS\DataSet Test performance\1000Documents"/>
        <process expanded="true">
          <operator activated="true" class="text:tokenize" compatibility="5.3.000" expanded="true" height="60" name="Tokenize" width="90" x="112" y="300"/>
          <connect from_port="document" to_op="Tokenize" to_port="document"/>
          <connect from_op="Tokenize" from_port="document" to_port="document 1"/>
          <portSpacing port="source_document" spacing="0"/>
          <portSpacing port="sink_document 1" spacing="0"/>
          <portSpacing port="sink_document 2" spacing="0"/>
      <operator activated="true" class="k_means" compatibility="5.3.013" expanded="true" height="76" name="Clustering" width="90" x="179" y="30">
        <parameter key="k" value="5"/>
        <parameter key="max_runs" value="1"/>
        <parameter key="max_optimization_steps" value="1"/>
      <operator activated="true" class="write_excel" compatibility="5.3.013" expanded="true" height="76" name="Write Excel" width="90" x="313" y="75"/>
      <connect from_op="Process Documents from Files" from_port="example set" to_op="Clustering" to_port="example set"/>
      <connect from_op="Process Documents from Files" from_port="word list" to_port="result 1"/>
      <connect from_op="Clustering" from_port="cluster model" to_op="Write Excel" to_port="input"/>
      <connect from_op="Write Excel" from_port="file" to_port="result 2"/>
      <portSpacing port="source_input 1" spacing="0"/>
      <portSpacing port="sink_result 1" spacing="0"/>
      <portSpacing port="sink_result 2" spacing="0"/>
      <portSpacing port="sink_result 3" spacing="0"/>

    you have connected the "file" output port of the "Write Excel" operator. Thus the file is not saved to your harddrive, but rather is handed to the process output. To fix that, you can disconnect the connection from the "Write Excel" operator to the process output and instead select the output file parameter of the "Write Excel" operator.

    I have the same problem, but I didn't uderstand the solution proposed here. I started my process with .csv file, connected it to k-means process, & then connectd the process with write wxcel operator but they saved the same original data, not the new clusers.
