Ignore Columns in Data Import

Postby Joe_Black » Sat Sep 26, 2015 6:45 pm

Concerns - import data

Sometimes you have several columns which can serve as identifiers - not just one. Currently if you select several columns as identifiers, BL will merge them into a single column during output. It would be very useful to have the option to keep them separate. So these columns would not be discretized but just passed from inputs to outputs.

Example: One column is Date and the other is Car ID. Together they uniquely identify each row. Mixing them works but when you export results (through inference for instance) it gets difficult to work with the data if you want for instance to sort by date only or car ID only.

Hi Joe_Black,

In the next release (6.0+) BayesiaLab will be able to import as many identifiers as wanted as separate columns.
They will be kept separated when exporting results as well.
