How to combine nodes in Enterprise miner into one model node?

I developed a new algorithm in enterprise miner and I want to combine all the nodes that I used into one node so I can use it in other diagrams and compare with other out of the box models.

I tried "Register model" but it assumes that the input data keeps the same structure which is not the case. I am using many other datasets in other diagrams. How can I do this?

It sounds like you want to create your own "template" of a diagram flow.

Right click on the name of your diagram and select "Save as" to save it as an XML.

To import this diagram and use it on new data, right click on "Diagrams", then select import from XML and the template you created.

I hope it helps,

Hi Miguel... Small world.

Not quite. I am trying to make a full diagram a single model so I can compare it with other models using "Model comparison" node. If I simply copy the diagram, model comparison acts as if I have several models not only one.

Hi, if you have developed a new modeling algorithm that you want to share or use in other diagrams, you might want to create an extension node. An extension node is essentially a SAS code node that has a custom property sheet and icon associated with it.

But could you explain a bit more about the nodes in your flow?  A screen shot of your flow would help.
