Remove columns from a table

Hi everybody,

 

I need to export several tables (txt files containing 20 columns) under JMP, but only 10 columns are useful for my use.

How can I include in a script the deleting of specified columns? I have attached one example file: (1) the txt source (2) the JMP version with all columns (3) the final JMP version with 10 columns.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Paul

Re: Remove columns from a table

Here is the very simple script to delete the unwanted columns.

names default to here(1);
dt=current data table();
dt << delete columns("I-delai", "I-durée", "I-pos", 
	"R-delai", "N°-Rec", "E-durée", "TR-max", "TM-max", 
	"code-PP", "cod-R-d");

The details are covered in the scripting index

     Help==>Scripting Index

To get started with scripting, I suggest you read the Scripting Guide 

     Help==>JMP Documentation Library==>Scripting Guide

Re: Remove columns from a table

Thanks txnelson,

 

You're absolutely right, the solutions (at least the simple ones) are in the scripting guide. We're always in a hurry to take the time to check it out.

All works well.

 

Have a good day

 

 

Paul
