Error message for Transform Variables

I am getting the error message "Maximum target levels of 512 exceeded. Training will no be performed".  Does anyone know how to correct this?

Re: Error message for Transform Variables

One of your nominal inputs has a lot of levels (more than 512) and your transform node wants you to take care of that.

Quick solution: use HPTransform node instaed. This node does not have that extra check.

Another alternative, bin your nominal (or ordinal) inputs to compact your levels.

 

Good luck!

Another suggestion if you want to keep all the levels is to increase the value for the EM_TRAIN_MAXLEVELS macro variable in the Project Macro Variables window.
