This a dialog allow you to use a tree from the Regression Trees menus to predict values for a new set of values for the X-variables. The variates and/or factors defining the values to be used to form the predictions must be entered into the Values for predictions box. If you use the same set of variables as in the menu, this will give the predictions for the original data set. Then check the boxes for the information that you want to save, and type the names for the identifiers of the data structures into the corresponding In: fields.
This lists data structures appropriate to the current input field. The contents will change as you move from one field to the next. Double-click a name to copy it to the current input field or you can type the name.

Items can be removed from this list by selecting them and clicking the button.
