Default Experimental Design Data Set
Use this field to specify the name and complete path to the default experimental design data set.
The Experimental Design Data Set (EDDS)
An EDDS is a SAS data set that provides information about the columns of a tall data set. It describes relevant experimental variables such as treatment conditions and covariates as well as a variable named ColumnName . Entries in the ColumnName column must exactly match the column names in the input tall data set. EDDSs have certain constraints that must be followed for the processes to run successfully.
An EDDS is frequently constructed using information from a corresponding experimental design file (EDF). An EDDS contains many of the same columns as an EDF, but, unlike the EDF, must be saved as a SAS data set ( .sas7bdat ). Many of the input engines that generate a tall data set from raw data files also automatically generate the needed EDDS.
An EDDS is required by most processes using a tall input data set. Processes using wide SAS data sets (most of the Genetics processes, for example) do not require an EDDS.

To Specify the Default EDDS:
The method used for this specification can vary depending on whether JMP is connected to SAS on your local machine or connected to SAS on a server. You should refer to the Specifying Folders, Files, and Data Sets documentation for detailed information.
