"Neural Networks for prediction using historical figures"

Looking for some help guys, I have constructed a Neural Net in Rapidminer with historical numerical data, with the most recent year being the label.  I get no correct predictions, however each record or row is predicted to within about 10% which may be acceptable for this purpose. Can you explain please how:

  1. Can I now apply the model to predict the figure for 2018, as the neural net operator will not accept a column with no data present.
  2. Can I write the the data out to an excel file, when i introduce the "Write Excel" operator it only writes out the original example data set and not the new data set with the prediction included.
I would greatly appreciate some assistance on this matter as my process is part of my dissertation for my Masters Degree and I am working against the clock.


Thanks in advance, look forward to hearing from you.


Kindest Regards,

Claire Murphy
