Performing actions on multiple nodes

You can perform actions on multiple nodes. The actions you can depend on the type of sample data that you base the model on and on the output data type of the node.
    1. Search for nodes in the Find field and select the nodes to perform the action on in the Results list.
    2. From the Action list, select one of the following actions:
    Option
    Description
    Add Prefix
    Adds a prefix to node names. Enter the prefix in the With field.
    Add Suffix
    Adds a suffix to node names. Enter the suffix in the With field.
    Exclude
    Exclude the nodes from the intelligent structure. Data from the node is not part of the output of the model and is not parsed during run time.
    Include
    Re-include excluded nodes in the structure.
    Expand
    Expand the nodes to show portions of the model that are collapsed under the nodes.
    Collapse
    Hides portions of the model that are nested under the nodes.
    Change Type to String
    Changes the data type of the nodes to string.
    Replace
    Replaces a string in node names with the string you enter in the With field. Node names are not case sensitive. Names must be unique across sibling nodes, that is, nodes that reside under the same node.
    Extract Formatted Data
    Parses the formatted data that Microsoft Excel shows. Applies to Microsoft Excel files.
    Extract Unformatted Data
    Parses the underlying, unformatted data. Applies to Microsoft Excel files.
    3. Click Apply to Selected.
