Automatically include the value of a variable in a title?

In JSL, how can I automatically include the value of a column in a graph title? For example, if my data query only returns data for species_name ="Blue Crab", how can I automatically incorporate species_name into my graph title? In SAS, I would use a macro variable. How can JMP do this?
I haven't messed around with titles, but I have used the parse function to make expressions from variables. Parse() is on JMP Scripting Guide p.428. It converts strings into expressions. So you can have a string consisting of the command to name the table, but you have your variable concatenated in there (e.g. "string" || variablename). Encapsulate that string into the parse() function. Give that a shot.
