# Optimization Grid with Random Forest - Not Working.

RapidMiner Unicorns 🦄,

I trying to run a optimization grid with our my Random Forest model and I am getting an error. It's stating that gain_ratio criterion cannot be used for numeric labels (see pictures below). I checked all my parameters and I am not using gain_ratio in the optimization grid (see pictures below). So, specifically how you used a optimization grid with cross validation, and random forest predicting a real number in RapidMiner?

Can you send an basic working example of this workflow process with with good documented comments explaining each step.

6Contributor IISpecifically what configuration/setup tasks are needed to make the grid optimization operator work and simply find the optimal parameters for Random Forest model? Do you have a sample workflow of how this can work?
