Hey JMP community, I am extremely new to jmp/jsl (literally just started this week). I have a script that is supposed to select where certain values in a row are less than 3, and then delete those rows. This is the script I have to do so:

```
dt << select where( :Residual 1 <= 3 );
dt << delete rows;
```

The code correctly selects the rows I want it to, but upon deleting the rows they "update" themselves (I have a neural network model scripted into the lines before it... see below code).

```
// 1. Creates X1 column, and corresponding Y1 and Ystat columns
Close All( Data Tables, NoSave );
dt = New Table( "SampleRun 3",
Add Rows( 100 ),
New Script(
"Ystat vs. X1",
Graph Builder(
Variables( X( :X1 ), Y( :Ystat ) ),
Elements( Points( X, Y, Legend( 5 ) ) )
)
),
New Column( "X1",
Formula( Random Integer( 50 ) )
),
New Column( "Y1",
Formula( If( :X1 < 25, 2 * :X1, 25 <= :X1 <= 30, 3 * :X1, 4 * :X1 ) )
),
New Column( "Ystat",
Formula( :Y1 )
)
);
// 2. Creates predicted Ystat column, saves formulas into same data table (first iteration)
PredictedYstat = dt << Neural(
Y( :Ystat ),
X( :X1 ),
Informative Missing( 0 ),
Validation Method( "Holdback", 0.3333 ),
Fit( NTanH( 3 ) )
);
PredictedYStat << Save Profile Formulas;
// 3. Adds residual column
dt << New Column( "Residual 1", Formula( Abs( :Predicted Ystat - :Ystat ) ) );
dt << select where( :Residual 1 >= 3 );
dt << delete rows;
```

I am able to select these rows and put them into a new table, but that is a last resort as it is inefficient. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Kyle

If you want the Formulas to evaluate once and only once, one option would be to force the computation and then delete the formulas:

```
dt << Run Formulas;
Column(dt, "X1") << Delete Formula;
Column(dt, "Y1") << Delete Formula;
Column(dt, "Ystat") << Delete Formula;
```

This worked, thank you!
