I want to add data from a table to a main table. This can be easily done by using the "join" option from the tables menu. However, this generates a new datatable while I want to add data to the main data table.
Now I have to close the original main table and than overwrite the original file with all potential risks.
Is thisd possible, and how (note that I know that JMP uses scripts, but I am not familiar with building my own scripts
If you are running JMP/JMP Pro version 13 the new virtual join capability might be something worth looking at. Especially if the size of the joined data table takes up a relatively large RAM footprint on your computer. Here's the link to the virtual join portion of the JMP online documentation:
I have seen the option (I am using JMP13.1 since a few months).
Not sure if it will work; data needs to come from different locations on our internal network, and multiple people will work with the merged file.
The help indicates that this option is specially designed to prevent creating massive files that slow down pc’s / laptops. Up till now, our files are still relatively small (<1000 rows and <50 columns).
I will look into this option, but hoped for a more simple solution J
