Nope, you don't need any of these things. Abandon all worry; invite the opportunity. You are ready.
JMP makes finding unique values in your columns quite easy by using the Recode option. The Recode dialog displays a list of all of the unique values for any number of columns that you have selected.
You can also make changes to any of the values. This is useful when making corrections, including new variables for a comparative analysis, or creating test variables that can be used to further investigate.
