Join Ron Davis for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding mining structures, part of Excel Data-Mining Fundamentals.
- Alright I have SQL Server Management Studio open.…Now don't be concerned here.…We are going to be working over in Excel.…But right now, I want to show you…the concept of a mining structure.…And if you remember,…the basis of a mining structure is we go out,…and we find data that we have in our…underlying data repositories,…and we bring that in, and that's the data that…we're going to be using when we do data mining.…So we're gonna take the structure,…and then apply a model to it.…
So here, I have open both Analysis Services,…and I also have open the standard database.…And in the database, what I wanna show you…is I have "AdventureWorksDW2012".…That's a downloadable database from Microsoft,…and they version it, everytime they…put out a new version of SQL.…So if we look at that...…Now if I extract down into a view,…again I don't expect you to really…understand views in SQL, et cetera,…but a view if you will,…is really a security implementation,…but it's a subset of tables,…and we can do things within it.…
So here's a view, "TargetMail".…
