I am having an issue in scripting the JSL code for two functions (see screen shot) which I currently have in Excel but want to transfer over into JMP. The data is found in the attached file **JMP_Test_Average2.xlsx** and the functions I wish to transfer to JMP are as follows:

*column VS*has a**COUNTIF**function; =COUNTIF(C3:N3,"-1")- I want to know the number of instances -1 appears in each row (e.g. in row 3 the number of instances of -1 are 2).
*Column m(AB)*is ignored in the function but it is impoirtant as it is part of the data sequence.

- I want to know the number of instances -1 appears in each row (e.g. in row 3 the number of instances of -1 are 2).
*column PD*has a**MATCH**function; =(MATCH("-1",C3:N3,0))+1- I want to know where the first instance of -1 appears in each row (e.g. in row 3 the first -1 appears in
*column m(LM)*or column 12 when considering*columns m(AB)*to*m(MN)*).*Column m(AB)*is ignored in the functions but it is impoirtant as it is part of the data sequence.

I would like to know how to script these functions in JSL so I can update my JMP table and not have to complete the calculations in Excel and then bring the results over into my JMP table.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Mike

Solution

This should give you a basic Idea.

```
Names Default to here(1);
dt = new table("Test", add rows(10),
New Column("AB", formula(if(random uniform()<=.8, 1, -1))),
New Column("BC", formula(if(random uniform()<=.8, 1, -1))),
New Column("CD", formula(if(random uniform()<=.8, 1, -1))),
New Column("DE", formula(if(random uniform()<=.8, 1, -1))),
New Column("EF", formula(if(random uniform()<=.8, 1, -1))),
);
cols = dt << Get Column Reference(dt << Get Column Names);
dt << new Column("VS", formula(nrows(Loc(Evallist({:AB, :BC, :CD, :DE, :EF}), -1))));
dt << New Column("PD", formula(Contains(Evallist({:AB, :BC, :CD, :DE, :EF}), -1)));
```

Here are the 2 formulae that I came up with to replicate your spreadsheet

For YS

```
Sum(
:Name( "m(AB)" ) == -1,
:Name( "m(BC)" ) == -1,
:Name( "m(CD)" ) == -1,
:Name( "m(EF)" ) == -1,
:Name( "m(FG)" ) == -1,
:Name( "m(GH)" ) == -1,
:Name( "m(HI)" ) == -1,
:Name( "m(IJ)" ) == -1,
:Name( "m(JK)" ) == -1,
:Name( "m(KL)" ) == -1,
:Name( "m(LM)" ) == -1,
:Name( "m(MN)" ) == -1
)
```

For PD

```
Contains(
Char( :Name( "m(AB)" ) ) || Char( :Name( "m(BC)" ) ) ||
Char( :Name( "m(CD)" ) ) || Char( :Name( "m(EF)" ) ) ||
Char( :Name( "m(FG)" ) ) || Char( :Name( "m(GH)" ) ) ||
Char( :Name( "m(HI)" ) ) || Char( :Name( "m(IJ)" ) ) ||
Char( :Name( "m(JK)" ) ) || Char( :Name( "m(KL)" ) ) ||
Char( :Name( "m(LM)" ) ) || Char( :Name( "m(MN)" ) ),
"-1"
)
```
