Hi,

I have a column with comma seperated values and by using column utilities text to column I get the column for each comma seperated value, however the dataset is growing hourl and by joining/concatenating the new data with the existing one I have to redo all the process again and again. Isn't there a formula for this (or better script)?

Many thanks in advance

Look at the "word" formula, for your first column you would use:

Word (1, text, ",")

Thank you. Do you have any idea for the second table which has the command of "indicator columns"?

I do not understand what you are trying to do with the second table. However, for indicator columns I would review the JMP documentation on the categorical (i.e., consumer research) platform as it has ways to work with categorical/indicator data and maybe there is something in there to help you.

For second table I also use "text to columns" and this time I tick "make indicator colums" but the result is not formulated by each row, have no idea about scripting it. I already checked the categorical section but hence this transformation is used for financial calculations the categorical can not compute not categorical values like "net revene"... Many thanks
