replicating analyses and display option changes with multiple groups

Hello-

I'm trying to run some simple summary statistics with a large data set of soil concentrations for 100 different chemicals: call them "chemical1" through "chemical100". If I run a simple distribution analysis for "soil concentration" with "chemical name" as the "by-group", JMP returns 100 histograms, sets of quantiles, and sets of moments.

What I would like is to make some changes to the output for chemical1 and have these changes replicated through all the other 99 chemicals. Strictly as an example, I might: make the histogram bars red, add "more moments", and add a simple one-sample t-test comparing the mean to zero.

Is there some way, using scripting perhaps, to make these changes apply to all 100 of my chemicals without going through each one individually? This seems like something that should be really simple but I just can't seem to figure it out...

thanks.

<-!

// open sample data file
dt = Open( "$SAMPLE_DATA/Big Class.jmp" );


Distribution(
Continuous Distribution( Column( :height ), CDF Plot( 1 ) ),
Continuous Distribution( Column( :weight ), CDF Plot( 1 ) ),
SendToReport(
Dispatch( {"height", "CDF Plot"}, "1", ScaleBox, {Max( 70 )} ),
Dispatch( {"weight", "CDF Plot"}, "1", ScaleBox, {Inc( 10 )} )
)
);

// next select one of the red-triangles on one of the distributions by
// holding the "CNTRL" key while clicking, select the desired option and
// it will apply to all simlar plots

// "Alt" - click will open a dialog to select multiple options

/* / Help Books, JMP Quick Reference Card, Common Clicks
In certain reports, apply a command to all similar reports in that window
Ctrl + Click the red triangle, then choose the command
⌘+ Click the red triangle,
then choose the command
Ctrl + Click the red triangle, then choose the command
*/

Best,
