Hi

I have been trying to write a formula for a column, using **Random Normal Mixture(meanvec, sdvec, probvec)**. I would like to use Table variables as the input. How do I go about this? Do I define the table variables as vectors or can i make a vector of single table variables in the formula editor?

Thank you for any clues or help

Solution

I think Jim was just using the script above as a convenient way to generate the table with the required properties and formula. But the script is not required. Please see the attached.

Here is an example script that uses table variables as input to a Random Normal Mixture formula:

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

dt = New Table**(** "Example" **)**;

mv = **[**-**3**, **3]**;

sv = **[****1**, **1]**;

pv = **[****.3**, **.7]**;

// All table variables are actually character strings

// so the matrices need to be saved as literals

dt << **New Table Variable(** "meanvec", Char**(** mv **)** **)**;

dt << **New Table Variable(** "sdvec", Char**(** sv **)** **)**;

dt << **New Table Variable(** "probvec", Char**(** pv **)** **)**;

dt << **New Column(** "Rand NM",

set formula**(** Random Normal Mixture**(**

Parse**(** dt:meanvec **)**,

Parse**(** dt:sdvec **)**,

Parse**(** dt:probvec **)** **)** **)**

**)**;

dt << **add rows(** **1000** **)**;

Hi Jim

Thank you very much for the answer. I was actually looking for a solution for how to do it in the formula editor in a table, ie. without scripting. Do you know how that can be done?

Best regards

Jeppe
