Convert Excel Formulas

Hi, I'm an excel user and complete RM novice; I've got a large spreadsheet I'm trying to convert in RM to speed things up but can't get the formula to calculate the same.  It's not complex - it's adding up a series of cells; I'm looking for help to convert from Excel into RM language - please see Excel formula sample below (all cells are numerical)


Any help greatly received!

    The operator Generate Aggregation is one operator that can be used, if you only need one operation at a time (such as sum or average) across multiple columns (called attributes in RapidMiner).
    However, for a formula like the one you have above, in which there are different operations as well as some hard-coded numerical scaling factors, then you would need to use Generate Attributes.  In that operator you can define a new attribute as a function of any number of existing attributes and can specify whatever sequence of operations that you want.  Take a look at the sample process in the help for that operator to see how it works.
