Delete Columns with Formula Reference in JSL

Hi,

I have a script where I would like to delete columns that contain a formula reference.  This is easy to do in JMP: when delete the unnecessary columns I get a "JMP Alert" and select "Remove Formula".  I am then able to delete my metadata columns, but the table maintains the result calculated in the formula column.

My problem is: how can I script this?  Is there an option to delete a metadata column that contains a formula reference?  I am using JMP10.  Please see the example below.

/*

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

bigClass << New Column( "height / weigh", Numeric, Continuous, Format( "Best", 12 ), Formula( :height / :weight ) );

bigClass << Delete Column( "height" );

bigClass << Delete Column( "weight" );

*/

Thanks!
