How to: Select the Viewer Type (Analysis Services - Data Mining)

You can explore the content of a mining model by using one of the viewers on the Mining Model Viewer tab of Data Mining Designer in Business Intelligence Development Studio. The Microsoft Generic Content Viewer shows the patterns discovered by the algorithm in a standard representation of nodes in a tree. Although the generic tree view shows all the content for the model in rich detail, it is more difficult to interpret. For more information, see Viewing Model Details with the Microsoft Generic Content Tree Viewer.

To select a viewer type

  • Select either Microsoft <model type> Viewer or Microsoft Generic Mining Content Viewer from the Viewer list at the top of the Mining Model Viewer tab in Data Mining Designer.
