t-test in enterprise miner

Can you perform a simple t-test in enterprise miner? I have a binary variable as an input variable and a continuous variable as a target. I know this can easily be done in base SAS, but wanted to understand how this is done in miner. I tried  the "multi-plot" function, and did not get any results.

You can always add a Code Node

Hi Wave43.  You can certainly use a code node in the context of a larger flow, automatically feeding data into the node for the test.  That will work wonderfully.  The larger question is what your use case is for running the T Test.  If your goal is to generate predictions, then you may be able to run a larger flow using such techniques as regression and neural networks, and generate insights as to how influential your input variable was to your target in the context of a larger flow.

Thanks,

Jonathan
