Subject: Enterprise Miner Keep and Exclude Lists
When I cluster, the final product also displays a word count in the left
table, which shows the number of times and documents a word is listed. I
have a question. If I toggle a word to remove it from the list, the
software asks me if I want to keep the document to save it as whatever.
This is now my "keep list" that I can re-cluster on to refine my results.
However, what if I want to do a 180 degree approach? Instead of telling
the software what to cluster on (i.e. a keep list), I want to make
an "exclude list" and tell it NOT to look at these words. The problem is
this - After clustering, the word count/list in the lower left table can
display kept words, removed words or both. If I display only the removed
words, is there a way to save THAT list so I can use it as an exclude list
for another clustering attempt? The software seems to only want to keep
the "kept" portion of that word count table.
If this is confusing, I can elaborate to anyone as needed. 770-644-8816
