Error description

  • IBM SPSS Statistics documentation states that exporting a
    Discriminant analysis model is done in PMML format:
    
    IBM SPSS Statistics Base.pdf - page 151
    "You can also export model information to the specified file in
    XML (PMML) format. You can use this model file to apply the
    model information to other data files for scoring purposes."
    
    However, when viewing the exported XML file, it is formatted
    using 'spss-ml' formatting instead.
    
    If you use this xml file in a TMS Merge command (Utilities >
    Merge Model XML), SPSS Statistics returns the following error:
    "Input <path\filename.xml> is invalid. The destination file will
    not be written."
    

Local fix

  • According to the Data Mining group, there is no general
    structure for discriminant models. See:
    http://www.dmg.org/v4-0-1/GeneralStructure.html
    This means that Discriminant model is not supported in PMML
    format. This is a defect with the IBM SPSS Statistics
    documentation and it has been raised to the SPSS Statistics
    development team for resolution.
