## Optimize "for each row"

Hello,

I have this script on the Big Class table.

On large tables, it takes too much time.

Is there some other quicker way?

``````AgesList = {13,14};
for each row(dt, if(Contains(AgesList ,dt:Name("Age"))>0,dt:Name("height")=-1));``````

Thanks.

This might be faster

``````Names Default To Here( 1 );
dt = Open( "\$SAMPLE_DATA/Big Class.jmp" );
AgesList = {13, 14};
ages_rows = dt << get rows where(contains(ageslist, dt:age));
dt:height[ages_rows] = -1;``````

## Re: Optimize "for each row"

There are a few unnecessary elements in your script. I do not know if they would add that much time, though. Here is a stripped-down, cleaner version:

``````Names Default To Here( 1 );

dt = Open( "\$SAMPLE_DATA/Big Class.jmp" );

AgesList = {13, 14};

For Each Row(
If( Contains( AgesList, dt:age ),
dt:height = -1;
);
);``````
