000736: You cannot include the Unique ID Field as an Independent Variable. Dropping <value> from the model...

Description

The unique ID field identifies each feature in the dataset and, consequently, is processed differently than other fields. Typically, the unique ID field would not be a good explanatory or dependent variable for a regression model.

Solution

Do not include the unique ID field as one of the explanatory variables. If you need to do this, however, first add a new field to your input dataset and use the Calculate Field tool to set the new field values to the values in the unique ID field.
