## Adding unit to Y-axis of a variability chart

I have a set of test items test across 80 devices. I am plotting the variability chart, i want to add the unit in to Y axis. I have the units in a diferent column. Column name is the default label set. Is there a way to add the units in to the label? any scripts available? attached  is the sample sheet and sample format of outout i want.

## Re: Adding unit to Y-axis of a variability chart

Here is a script that produces what you want by adding the Units to the name of the Tests.  I ran this against the Excel file that was supplied.  The script assumes the data table has opened in JMP prior to running the script. ``````Names Default To Here( 1 );

// This script assumes you have opened the Excel file as a JMP Data Table
dt = Current Data Table();

// Split the data into the proper form for analysis
dtSplit = dt << Split( Split By( :TestInstance ), Split( :value ), Remaining Columns( Drop( :Unit ) ), Sort by Column Property );

// Create a data table to determine the units for each test
dtUnits = dt << Summary( Group( :TestInstance, :Unit ), Freq( "None" ), Weight( "None" ), Link to original data table( 0 ) );

// Loop across the data table and add the Units to the different Test Columns in the data table
For( i = 1, i <= N Rows( dtUnits ), i++,
If( dtUnits:Unit[i] != "",
Column( dtSplit, dtUnits:TestInstance[i] ) << set name(
Column( dtSplit, dtUnits:TestInstance[i] ) << get name || " ( " || dtUnits:Unit[i] || " )"
)
)
);

// Delete the Units data table since it is no longer needed
close( dtUnits, nosave );

// Create a window to place all of the charts into
nw = New Window( "Variability Chart by PackageID", vlb = V List Box() );

// Get all of the column names
colNames = dtSplit << get column names( string, numeric );

// Loop across all of the columns and when a Test column is found,
// then create a chart for it
For( i = 1, i <= N Items( colNames ), i++,
If( Contains( colNames[i], "Test" ) == 1,
testList = ":Name(\!"" || colNames[i] || "\!")";
Eval(
Substitute(
Expr(
vlb << append( dtSplit << Variability Chart( Y( __theList__ ), X( :PackageID ), Std Dev Chart( 0 ) ) )
),
Expr( __theList__ ), Parse( testList )
)
);
)
);``````

## Re: Adding unit to Y-axis of a variability chart

That's effectively what I was thinking for the split.  Nice job, Jim.

The alternative approach I was considering would avoid the split and y-axis label would just be unit.  If the unit is missing, I just put "Unknown Unit" in its place, but you can do whatever you want there.  This approach builds the "SendToByGroup" portion of the script.  This works well with your sample data:

``````Names Default to Here(1);
dt = Current Data Table();

/**** Get units for each level of TestInstance ***/
testList = Associative Array(dt:TestInstance) << get keys;
unitList = {};
for(i = 1, i<=N Items(testList), i++,
temp = dt:Unit[min(dt << Get Rows Where(:TestInstance == testList[i]))];
Insert Into(unitList, If(Is Missing(temp),"Unknown Unit", temp ));
);

unitArray = Associative Array(testList, unitList);

/**** Build the Var Chart Script ****/
varChartStr = "Variability Chart(
Y( :value ),
X( :PackageID ),
Std Dev Chart( 0 ),
By( :TestInstance )";

//Loop through levels of TestInstance to add the unit label for the y-axis
for(i=1, i<= N Items(testList), i++,
varChartStr = varChartStr || Eval Insert("\[,
SendToByGroup(
{:TestInstance == "^testList[i]^"},
SendToReport(
Dispatch(
{"Variability Gauge TestInstance=^testList[i]^",
"Variability Chart for value"},
"value",
TextEditBox,
{Set Text( "^unitArray[testList[i]]^" )}
)
)
)]\");
);

//Close the script
varChartStr = varChartStr || "
);";

//Run the script
eval(parse(varChartStr));

//Add the script to the data table
Eval(Parse(Eval Insert("dt << New Script(\!"Variability Chart\!", ^varChartStr^)")));``````

## Re: Adding unit to Y-axis of a variability chart

If you have to do this one time, just click on the axis labels and type in whatever you want.  If you have to do this repeatedly, type in what you want and save the script.  Point this script at any future table:

``````Variability Chart(
SendToByGroup( {:TestInstance == "Test1"} ),
Y( :value ),
SendToByGroup( {:TestInstance == "Test1"}, Y( :value ) ),
SendToByGroup( {:TestInstance == "Test2"}, Y( :value ) ),
SendToByGroup( {:TestInstance == "Test3"}, Y( :value ) ),
SendToByGroup( {:TestInstance == "Test4"}, Y( :value ) ),
X( :PackageID ),
Std Dev Chart( 0 ),
By( :TestInstance ),
SendToByGroup(
{:TestInstance == "Test1"},
SendToReport(
Dispatch(
{"Variability Gauge TestInstance=Test1",
"Variability Chart for value"},
"value",
TextEditBox,
{Set Text( "Unknown" )}
)
)
),
SendToByGroup(
{:TestInstance == "Test2"},
SendToReport(
Dispatch(
{"Variability Gauge TestInstance=Test2",
"Variability Chart for value"},
"value",
TextEditBox,
{Set Text( "mA" )}
)
)
),
SendToByGroup(
{:TestInstance == "Test3"},
SendToReport(
Dispatch(
{"Variability Gauge TestInstance=Test3",
"Variability Chart for value"},
"value",
TextEditBox,
{Set Text( "uA" )}
)
)
),
SendToByGroup(
{:TestInstance == "Test4"},
SendToReport(
Dispatch(
{"Variability Gauge TestInstance=Test4",
"Variability Chart for value"},
"value",
TextEditBox,
{Set Text( "mA" )}
)
)
)
)``````

## Re: Adding unit to Y-axis of a variability chart

Thanks @cwillden but i have 200+ test items so this method may be not suitable for that big set of test items. Do you have any idea to use it with the loop?

thanks.

## Re: Adding unit to Y-axis of a variability chart

I think it would be easier in a wider format (i.e. split the "value" column on TestInstance), but if you want to keep it in the long format, the most straightforward approach might be to construct the SendToByGroup() parts in a loop and grabbing the unit for each by group level.  I can certainly help you with that later tonight, but I have to run right now.

## Re: Adding unit to Y-axis of a variability chart

Thank you @txnelson  and @cwillden. both scripts work for the original question.

Thanks,
