    Default Selecting Applying We are having problems when applying the "NumericToNominal" filter

    We are having problems when applying the "NumericToNominal" filter to convert our dependent variable. When we apply it by checking only the depdendent variable, it not only converts the dependent variable but it also converts the rest of the independent variables also.



    How do we selectively convert only those variables to Nominal which are categorical?

    Thank you for your guidance in advance!

    The checkboxes in the Explorer are used simply for removing attributes via the "Remove" button (which is a shortcut for using the Remove filter) at the bottom of the panel. The attributes converted by NumericToNominal can be specified by opening up the editor dialog for NumericToNominal - click anywhere in the text area that shows the current NumericToNominal configuration (beside the "Choose" button). You can then alter the range of attributes to discretize by setting the "attributeIndices" property.

    Cheers,
    Mark.
