Share the Project

Sometimes you want to archive a project and share it with others. JMP zips the files in the project and saves the state of the project (the bookmarks, open panes, pane sizes, and so on).

When other users open the archived project on their computer, the links are resolved as follows:

1. If the file is in the same folder as the project or in a subfolder, the link contains a relative path, such as My Data/Corn

2. If the file is in a directory that JMP represents as a path variable, such as the desktop or documents directory, the links contain the path variable, such as $DESKTOP/Corn See Path Variables in the Scripting Guide.

3. Otherwise, the link contains an absolute path, such as C:/2017Data/Corn

Caution: An absolute path does not work on other users’ computers unless their file system is set up like yours.

To archive a project

1. Make sure the project is saved.

2. Select File > Archive Project.

3. Browse to the folder where you want to save the project files.

4. Click Save.

To unarchive a project

1. Use Windows Explorer or macOS Finder to create the folder in which you want to extract the files.

2. Open the archive in JMP.

3. Select the folder that you just created and click Extract.
