Ribbon bar. Select the Data Mining tab. In the Trees/Partitioning group, click CHAID to display the General CHAID Models Startup Panel.

Classic menus. On the Data Mining menu, select General CHAID Models to display the General CHAID Models Startup Panel.

The Startup Panel contains one tab: Quick.

Note: Missing data. Missing data in predictor variables in the General CHAID (GCHAID) Models and General Classification and Regression Trees (GC&RT) modules are handled differently from the Interactive Trees module. Because the Interactive Trees  module does not support ANCOVA-like design matrices, it is more flexible in the handling of missing data. Refer to Missing Data in GC&RT, GCHAID, and Interactive Trees for additional details.
