Access jsl code of New Column with Formula

Hello,

 

is there a simple way of getting the jsl code of a generated column (I used New Formula Column from column menu) as I am wondering how to deal with the local variables in the New Column jsl code (Formula).

Best regards

NamesDefaultToHere(1);

dt = Open("$SAMPLE_DATA/Big Class.jmp");

// Add a formula column . . .
nc = dt << NewColumn("BMI", Numeric, Continuous, Formula((:weight/:height^2)*703));

// Get the formula expression from a column into a variable . . .
bmiFormula = nc << getFormula;
Print(bmiFormula);
