input example set does not have a predicted label attribute

I'm trying to use "fit trend" and "Neural Net" tor find the trend line fot a time series.

Desipite using  "Set Role" operator to set the attribute as lable, I still receive the error "input example set does not have a predicted label attribute" in latest version of Rapidminer studio:

Here is the project:

    "Fit Trend" requires a prediction rather than just a label.  So you already must have built a model and you feed that into "Fit Trend" and it then fits a trendline to the prediction.  See the attached process.

    Hi Brian,

    I used your process, but the trend output is the same as the prediction output. Even if I use default model operator as inner learner for the fit trend. Do I something wrong with the date attribute?


    In addition why is this operator needing a predicted label attribute? In the tutorial of Thomas Ott (http://www.neuralmarkettrends.com/rapidminer-5-0-video-tutorial-8/) a fit trend operator is directly used on a data set. I tried building this process as well, but get the same error as above above (example set is missing predicted label attribute).


    Hope you can help me.
