    doesn't the suffix function in Generate Attributes do the job?

    Exactly as @mschmitz said above, but you might need to convert your integer on the left column into a nominal value first using str() or one of the RapidMiner operators.


    Here is a sample process.


    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><process version="7.3.000">
    <operator activated="true" class="process" compatibility="7.3.000" expanded="true" name="Process">

    <operator activated="true" class="text:create_document" compatibility="7.3.000" expanded="true" height="68" name="Create Document" width="90" x="45" y="136">
    <parameter key="text" value="220170002&#10;857203&#10;88986401&#10;96600"/>
    <operator activated="true" class="text:write_document" compatibility="7.3.000" expanded="true" height="82" name="Write Document" width="90" x="179" y="136"/>
    <operator activated="true" class="read_csv" compatibility="7.3.000" expanded="true" height="68" name="Read CSV" width="90" x="313" y="136">
    <parameter key="first_row_as_names" value="false"/>
    <list key="annotations"/>
    <list key="data_set_meta_data_information"/>
    <operator activated="true" class="generate_attributes" compatibility="7.3.000" expanded="true" height="82" name="Generate Attributes" width="90" x="447" y="136">
    <list key="function_descriptions">
    <parameter key="suffix_example" value="suffix(str(att1),5)"/>
    <description align="center" color="transparent" colored="false" width="126">Note the use of str() to change the integer value into a nominal value before suffix.</description>

    <connect from_op="Read CSV" from_port="output" to_op="Generate Attributes" to_port="example set input"/>
