Hi-

I'm a new JMP user and I've been taking some online tutorials and doing some simple practice with JMP.

Here's a simple question: when I create a summary out of a table (say, I choose to calculate the mean of a column), there's an option where I can choose to link the summary table to the original table. I checked that, and then I got a new table with the mean of the column. However, when I modified a number in the source table, it told me that "The source table has changed. Summary table will be dissociated from it."

I thought if I chose to link the two tables, updating the source table will update the summary table? Did I miss anything here?

Thank you!

If you select, exclude, or hide a row in the summary table, the corresponding rows in the original table are selected, excluded or hidden. Same if you change row symbol or color in the summary table.

Re: Summary table dissociated from the source table?

The Summary table is linked for row states only, not auto-updating of calculated values.

Sorry.

Re: Summary table dissociated from the source table?

Hi Jeff

Thank you for the reply! What did you mean by row states? I thought you meant that if I remove a row from the source table, the summary table will update the change? But I just tried and removing a row will also dissociate the summary from the source.

Thank you...
