Fishers Exact Test in JMP Pro

JMP Pro is reported to have the ability to perform the Fishers Exact test on tables larger then 2x2.  In the case of a 2x2 table if the numbers are small the exact test is generated automatically (both in the regular and pro version).  How do I access the Fishers Exact test in Pro when the table is larger than 2x2 (3x2 or larger)

It should be in red triangle menu for the Contingency Analysis.

Re: Fishers Exact Test in JMP Pro

Thank you.  Ultimately the issue was that I had 2 versions of JMP installed on the same computer.  What I found was that when I tried to open JMP-PRO it always defaulted to the basic JMP version installed.  I removed the basic JMP software and was able to use the Pro version that has the feature.

Please provide me with a citation for using Fisher's Exact Test on a table larger than 2 x 2?  Thanks.
