I have a data table in which I want to add the row values of four columns into a fifth column. However, I have missing values in all four original columns and that is OK, but when I apply the formula to add the four columns, all I get is a column of missing values because JMP will not add three values and a missing value. What can I do to remedy this situation?

Solution

If you use the SUM function instead of the + operator, it should add the non-missing values.

Instead of using the + operator, try the Sum(:Col1, :Col2, :Col3) function.
