JMP error: blocking ignored because cell counts were unequal

Hi,

I'm trying to do a fit Y by X and I have experimental blocks, but when I try to include them, I get this error:

"Blocking ignored because cell counts unequal"

I have 20 varieties of plants, 3 biological reps of each, and 3 technical reps of each (measurements)

I want to fit the response (glucose release) to the factor (variety) and have nested blocks of bio & technical reps.

My intention is to see the variability both within technical and biological reps..

Am I doing something wrong?  I don't know why cell counts would be unequal..

Hi,

Did you figure this out? I received the same error even though all my cell counts were equal.

Thanks

Hi Rhoskins,

I took a different route with my data set and ended up not needing that analysis. However, just give JMP a call or email. Once you get in contact you can email them a particular dataset and they'll help you out.

All the best!

Thanks!  I'll contact JMP to see if they can point me in the right direction.
