I have a script that allows me to select columns to run an analysis on. My trouble is inserting the selecting columns into the appropriate location. The script won't run when I insert the variable. What do I need to do to make this work?

I made the text red with the area that I am struggling.

colDlg = Column Dialog(

Title( "Column Selection" ),

yCol = Col List( "Y, Response", Min Col( 1 ) ),

xCol = Col List( "X, Factor", Min Col( 1 ) )

);

For( c = 1, c < 3, c++,

For( b = 1, b < 7, b++,

transb = Match( b, 1, "Log", 2, "Sqrt", 3, "Square", 4, "Reciprocal", 5, "Exp", 6, "None", );

For( a = 1, a < 7, a++,

transa = Match( a, 1, "Log", 2, "Sqrt", 3, "Square", 4, "Reciprocal", 5, "Exp", 6, "None", );

Bivariate(

Y( yCol ),

X( xCol ),

Fit Special(

xTran( transb ),

yTran( transa ),

Degree( c ),

Centered Polynomial( 0 ),

{Line Color( {213, 72, 87} )}

)

);

);

)

);

Column Dialog() is being phased out. It is old syntax. You should be using:

`New Window("Test", Modal, ................);`

The Column Dialog function returns a list, therefore you need to extract the falues from the list, rather than accessing them directly. See below:

Secondly, the Column Dialog box has been lowered to a "Retired" state. You should be using New Window(), with a "Modal" option

```
colDlg = Column Dialog(
Title( "Column Selection" ),
ycol = Col List( "Y, Response", Min Col( 1 ) ),
xcol = Col List( "X, Factor", Min Col( 1 ) )
);
For( c = 1, c < 3, c++,
For( b = 1, b < 7, b++,
transb = Match( b, 1, "Log", 2, "Sqrt", 3, "Square", 4, "Reciprocal", 5, "Exp", 6, "None", );
For( a = 1, a < 7, a++,
transa = Match( a, 1, "Log", 2, "Sqrt", 3, "Square", 4, "Reciprocal", 5, "Exp", 6, "None", );
Bivariate(
Y( colDlg["yCol "]),
X( colDlg["xCol"] ),
Fit Special(
xTran( transb ),
yTran( transa ),
Degree( c ),
Centered Polynomial( 0 ),
{Line Color( {213, 72, 87} )}
)
);
);
)
);
```

Jim,

I made the changes you showed and it is working.

However, I am unclear as to your second sent comments. What do you mean by "Retired" and "Modal option"?

I am new to scripting and any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

David
