Please will you help me with this script. I'm trying to transfer a column full of items/values (some characters and Numerics) from an old table to a new table and this scripts is not fully working. I'm propably missing something. I'm sorry I'm new to JMP.
DATAtwo=Data Table("Results Extract");
testid = DATAtwo:column3 << Get Values; // Test
dtfour << New Column( "key", formula( trans[dtfour:column6] ) );
Here is an example of how to do what you are looking for:
Names Default To Here( 1 ); dt = Open( "$SAMPLE_DATA\Big Class.jmp" ); MyNames = dt:Name << get values; dt2 = New Table( "new", New Column( "TheNames", character, values( MyNames ) ), New Column( "TheAges", values( dt:age << get values ) ) );
I always start by thinking of how I would do this interactively and then get the script from the resulting data table.
To create a new data table with only a some columns of an existing one, I'd use Tables -> Subset.
If wanted to copy those columns to another existing data table I'd use Tables->Join.
