Hello all,

I am new to RapidMiner and have gone through all the videos. When uploading the GE.xls i cannot get the option with the "Use first row for column names" check-box.

Is there something i am missing? I am on version 5.0.006

I have uninstaled and re-installed severally, also applied all the extensions available for download and i cant seem to make headway.

    i have the same problem. it's frustrating when you try your first data set and notice there is some important option you don't have.

    can someone provide a fix?

    Hi Guys,

    I have this problem as well - did either of you solve it.

    It's driving me crazy.

    With version 5.1, on step 3 of 5 of the data import wizard, there is a new column called "Annotation". Select "Name" against the row corresponding to the names of the attributes.
