I have a model with a target variable (type real) and a predicted variable.

I need an extra attribute in the result that calculates the absolute value of the difference from the predicted score and the actual score. How do I do this?  


The way I am doing it now is to save the results in an Excel file and add an extra column and then calculate the difference.  But I would  like to do it directly in RM.

    the Generate Attribute operator is the operator you would like to use. The equation is something like

    [label] - [prediction(label)]


    where label is your target att.
