How to copy attribute columns into new example set with the script operator

Dear community,

As a part of a larger script I am trying to copy selected attribute columns to a new example set.

Source example set:
label  att1   att2
1      a      1x
2      b      1y
3      c      1z

Target shall look like this (att2 copied from source):

My script looks currently like this:

import com.rapidminer.tools.Ontology;
exampleSet sourceTable = input[ 0 ];
exampleSet targetSet = new ExampleSet();
return targetSet;

Looking forward to any feedback...

PS: There are likely various ways to get from the original example set to the target one. But context of my whole script I am looking especially for a way to copy an attribute column.


PPS: By the way, is there any chance to access the values of macros in a script?

Best regards

    you can use select attribute operator and change the attribute type with regular expression and fill the regular expression with the name of your attribute that you want

    Hi binsetyawan,


    Thank you for contributing. The point is that this is only a small excerpt from the whole script and I would like to handle this part within the script, too.


    Kind regards
