I am a totally new user to Rapid Miner and I was trying to use RapidMiner to do association rule analysis but I didn't know the format of the inputs that required for this analysis in RapidMiner. The user guide does not tell much about it.

I tried R for this analysis but ran into memory limitation. For R, I do know the required format of the input. R accepts CSV file with one column containing the order identification ID and the other column containing the product ID, and hence there could be several records for a single order in the file. Does this also apply to RapidMiner?

RapidMiner can handle such a CSV data format for association rule analysis as well. The standard way of reading in CSV files in RapidMiner is the Operator CSVExampleSource. Besides of the well-known Apriori algorithm for association rule learning, RapidMiner also provides an implementation of the more time efficient FPGrowth algorithm.
