I need to check if the columns contain either of the 2 strings and then replace column value with value in another column.
Here's the code -
if(contains(:step[i],"NA")| contains(:step[i],".") ,
:step[i] = description[i];
But I get an error saying - argument is wrong type in access or evaluation of 'Contains'
What am I doing wrong here?
I beleive the issue is that your column called "description" is not properly being scoped. It needs to have a ":" in front of its reference ":description".
Here is an example using a sample data table, that does what you want
Names Default To Here( 1 );
dt = Open("$SAMPLE_DATA/Big Class.jmp");
For( i = 1, i <= N Rows( dt ), i++,
If( Contains( :Name[i], "TIM" ) | Contains( :Name[i], "ROBERT" ),
:Name[i] = :Sex[i]
There are no labels assigned to this post.
