Stepwise Error with Logistic Regression

SOLVED

Hello,

 

I'm new to Alteryx, so forgive me if this has been addressed before. I am following the Udacity Binary Classification course on the Alteryx website, where we're building a logistic regression model and the using the Sepwise tool. However, I get the following error: Error: Stepwise (11): Tool #5: Error in parse(text = paste(orig.name, "<- orig.model")) :

I'm completely clueless as to what this means. There are no missing data in the dataset. I've taken pains to assign variables their right types. I am aware that the Stepwise tool requires two inputs: one from the model output (in this case logistic) and one from the data that was supplied to the model. These were done. Also I have attached the yxmd and the dataset as well. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

Sorry for any confusion. The dataset is actually attached as well. Thanks

Hi @kwkeb - great job on the data investigation!  That's always the first step.

 

In your case, please rename your model with no spaces (I used Logistic_Regression).  Per the Help page, model names must start with a letter and may contain letters, numbers, and the special characters period (.) and underscore (_). No other special characters are allowed (including spaces), and R is case sensitive.

 

Thanks,

Criston

Hi Criston - thanks for the response. It solved it! I can't believe something like an underscore would trip me. Thanks again!
