Notes in Data Table

Is there any way to write some notes somewhere in JMP and save in the data table? For instance, I would like to write some notes about the steps I took to clean the data and I would like to save it to the data table similar to saving scripts in the top left corner of the table. Thanks.

Re: Notes in Data Table

You can just add a New Table Variable and call it Notes: and then type anything you want into the value space for it.
Also, every column has a Column Property called Note, where you can save notes about a particular column

Re: Notes in Data Table

@txnelsonoffers some simple and elegant solutions. Another might be to create a JMP Project with the data table and additional supporting documentation containing your notes like a JMP Journal, or MS Word document, or really just about any other file structure construct. If your data cleaning steps are highly repetitive and you've codified them in a JMP script, you could embed the script as well. One nice feature of a JMP Project is it's shareable with others and an easy way to package up lots of disparate file structures and work related content.
