I want to fill rows with 1,2,3,4, ... I know I can use row functions, but I am practicing some simple coding.
I am writing the code below in the column formula, and it fills the rows of my Test column 1,2,3,... but last row is empty. Can anyone please point out the issue? I will eventually write script in script window, but right now just practicing in column formula...
a = N Row();
For( i = 1, i <= a, i++,
Row() = i;
:Test = i;
Here is a simple example of what you want to do:
Names Default To Here( 1 ); dt = Open( "$SAMPLE_DATA\big class.jmp" ); dt << New Column( "Test" ); a = N Row( dt ); For( i = 1, i <= a, i++, dt:Test[i] = Floor( Mod( i, 4 ) ); If( Floor( Mod( i, 4 ) ) == 0, dt:Test[i] = 4 ); );
Here is the same thing as a formula
If( Floor( Mod( Row(), 4 ) ) == 0,
Floor( Mod( Row(), 4 ) )
Formulas automatically cycle through all rows
I echo what Jim said. Column Formulas are essentially an implicit loop over all rows in the table. So, in your case, to create a column that numbers every row, the column formula for the TEST column is simply:
This will number each row of the TEST column from 1 through the end of the table.
If you were to use direct scripting from a script window:
For( i = 1, i <= N Row(), i++, :Test[i] = i );
