Hi to all,
I'm a new user with rapid miner.
I start to use some package and immediatly i'm blocked in a problem.

I want to replace some missing value with the average of the same attribute grouped with an other attribute. For example i have

hour - value 1 - value 2
1      -  10        - 20
2      -  15        - 25
3      -  32        - 8
1      -  12        - 18
2      -  10        - 29
3      -  27        - 11
1      -  5          - 24
2      -  14        - 20
3      -  10        - 3

1      -  ?        - ?
should became
1     -  (10+12+5)/3  - (20+18+24)/3

there's a way to do this thing??

thanks all

    you can do this using a loop values, and then do the replacement for each group. Attached is an example process.
