turn centroid table into data

There is probably something simple I am missing here, but part of the output of a clustering operator is an object called the "centroid table" that contains the average centroid values for each cluster for all attributes.  But it seems to be trapped in the centroid output.  How can that table be easily retrieved or extracted to turn into a dataset for further analysis?  Thanks.

    Hi Brian,


    Extract Cluster Prototype Prototypes does the job :).

    Heh! I didn't even know about this operator. Cool!

    Can you tell us how to connect "Extract Cluster Prototypes"? I tried connecting it directly to the output from the Clustering process and got the message "Wrong Connection : Your connection is producing the wrong type of data. Try changing the starting point of the connection."
