JMP script for entering in variable text?

Hi all,

Is there a command/way for JMP to ask you to input certain parameters/strings/values (e.g. file location, file name, etc.) via a pop-up box while I run a script?

1. Ask the user to input the file location (Is there a way for it to work like a simple 'Open' function does in any program where you can go directly to the folder?)

2. Wait until the user has performed #1.

3. Perform the rest of the script once the above actions have taken place.

 

I'm trying to automate a way to have over 100 excel files with different names, and figured the best solution would be to ask the user to input the actual file name/location to standardize a bit. Fortunately, the column structure is the same throughout.

 

Kind Regards,

Zach

To get you started, try 'Help > Scripting Index' and serach for 'PickDirectory()','PickFile()' and 'FilesInDirectory()'.
