Hello all,

I was wondering if there is a way to password protect a data table in JMP 10. Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks!

It may not be the most efficient way, but you can copy the Table Script, paste it into a new script and then encrypte the script.  Granted, any time you make changes to the data you'd have to repeat the process, but I don't believe you can directly encrypt the data tables.

Except for a kluge like suggests, there is no option to password protect a data table.

Hello,

In SAS we can lock a dataset with a password. We should use the option PW to assign a password. Check the example below.

data y1(pw=sam);

input name $ age;

cards;

sam 12

albert 13

;

run;

After you run the code, once you try to open the dataset y1, it will promot of the password.

Hope this helps

Regards

Yesh

I didn't know you could do that in SAS, so I learned another new trick today. Thanks yeshwanth!
