I'm attempting to get the last value from a list that was created using the following:

x = :Values << get values;

I tried using x[n rows()] since I know that works with the get as matrix() function, but the list is nominal and I keep getting an error.

Any help is appreciated. I'm using JMP 11

`x[nrows(x)];`

That should do it.

If the data type of the Values column is "Character" (and therefore the modeling type of the Values column is either nominal or ordinal), then x is a list instead of a matrix. (Values in a list is enclosed in curly braces {} instead of brackets [] ). In that case try using the N Items() function instead of the N Rows() function.

lastitem = x[N Items( x )];
