Hi raman269,


The data set that you analyze with the Association node must have a data role of Transaction. This tells SAS Enterprise Miner that the data has multiple rows for each person/customer, and to treat each person's entries as one transaction:






Even though there are two rows for ID 0000001, these two entries will be treated as one transaction. 







The WEBSTATION data set should be assigned the role of Transaction. This role can be assigned either in the process of creating the data source or by changing the properties of the data source inside the Properties Panel in SAS Enterprise Miner.


Hope this helps!
