Hi,

I need help in replicating a functionality as in MS Excel.

I have two data Columns A and B. I want to combine them into column C on the condition IF value of A is empty then copy value of B in C

Could you please guide me on how to do this in Rapid Miner??

Thanks in Advance,
Jegan.

    Here's an example using the Generate Attributes operator:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
    <process version="5.3.015">
      <context>
        <input/>
        <output/>
        <macros/>
      </context>
      <operator activated="true" class="process" compatibility="5.3.015" expanded="true" name="Process">
        <process expanded="true">
          <operator activated="true" class="generate_data_user_specification" compatibility="5.3.015" expanded="true" height="60" name="Generate Data by User Specification" width="90" x="45" y="75">
            <list key="attribute_values">
              <parameter key="A" value="&quot;Jimmy&quot;"/>
              <parameter key="B" value="&quot;Stewart&quot;"/>
            </list>
            <list key="set_additional_roles"/>
          </operator>
          <operator activated="true" class="generate_attributes" compatibility="5.3.015" expanded="true" height="76" name="Generate Attributes" width="90" x="313" y="30">
            <list key="function_descriptions">
              <parameter key="C" value="if(missing(A),B,concat(A,B))"/>
            </list>
          </operator>
          <operator activated="true" class="generate_data_user_specification" compatibility="5.3.015" expanded="true" height="60" name="Generate Data by User Specification (2)" width="90" x="45" y="165">

            </list>
            <list key="set_additional_roles"/>
          </operator>
          <operator activated="true" class="generate_empty_attribute" compatibility="5.3.015" expanded="true" height="76" name="Generate Empty Attribute" width="90" x="179" y="165">

          </operator>
          <connect from_op="Generate Data by User Specification" from_port="output" to_op="Generate Attributes" to_port="example set input"/>
