All in good time: Updating time and date character values to numeric values in JMP

These days, we are always hearing about time:

We are having the time of our lives!

Phew,  just in the nick of time!

We are so ahead of our time!

Even in JMP, time is of essence.

Sometimes, when importing data into JMP, your time or date data might come in as character values. Unfortunately, character values don't contain the appropriate time or date data associated with them to be effectively used in analysis.

This is not a time for concern! In JMP, it is easy to update the data type from character to numeric, and JMP will include appropriate time and date data  during the update. Watch the following video (2:44) to learn how:
