Distributional: Performs centering and standardization (e.g. z-score).
Character: Provides basic character functions (e.g., concatenate).
Combine: Provides derived measures from selected columns.
Random: Samples with or without replacement from the selected column(s), or generates random uniform or random normal data.
When made from the data table, the new formula column is saved automatically back to the data table.
From launch windows, JMP creates a temporary (or virtual) column, which is listed in italics and can be used in the current analysis. To add this temporary column to the data table as a formula column, right-click on the column and select Add to Data Table. This adds a new column and creates the formula, which is accessible through the Formula Editor.
Notes: To access the Formula Editor for any column, right-click on the column name and select Formula. Common transformations are available in the Formula Editor under the Transcendental functions category. For more details on creating formulas, search for Formula Editor or Virtual Columns in JMP Help or in the book Using JMP(under Help > Books).
