Use the Row Editor to Edit Cells in a Row

Use the Row Editor to browse or edit cells one row at a time. Open the Row Editor in one of the following ways:

Select Rows > Row Editor.

In a data table, double-click in the row number area. The row that you use is the row that first appears in the Row Editor.

In a report window, right-click in a plot or graph and select Row Editor.

Figure 4.21 Row Editor 

Note the following:

If you have a report window open, and you want edited data to be automatically reflected there, make sure that Automatic Recalc is turned on. See Automatic Recalc in the JMP Reports section.

If your data table contains value labels, the Row Editor displays the label, and when the cell is highlighted for editing, it shows the actual value. See Value Labels in the The Column Info Window section.

Row Editor Buttons

Click the arrow buttons to browse through selected rows or the entire data set if no rows are selected. Row Editor buttons are described as follows:
