Save discriminant scores

I am using the Discriminant Analysis tool and I want to save the information from the Discriminant Scores report into my data table. I.e., I want to add the predicted outcome and associated probability to my existing data table. How do I do this?

In the Help section I see there is a SAVE Discriminant Score command when doing discriminant analysis in MANOVA but I don't see a similar command for the Discriminant Analysis tool.

Thanks!

That command seem to be missing. But you can use the selection tool to select the Scores Table (or desired columns) in the report. Copy and Paste with column names into a empty Data Table. Then use "Update" or "Join" from the Tabeles Menu to merge the Scores with your original data.

You can of course paste directly into your original data table but the you must add and select an appropriate number of columns first. I think the Update command is very useful.
