Basic column properties that apply generally include Formula and Notes.

Insert a formula into a column to compute the values for that column. After a formula is added, the column is locked so that its data values cannot be manually edited (preventing invalidation of the formula).

• Click Edit Formula to create a formula. For more information about creating a formula, see Create Formulas in JMP.

• If you do not want JMP to evaluate the formula, click Suppress Eval.

• If you do not want JMP to alert you about errors in your formula, click Ignore Errors.

• Once you have created a formula:

– In the Column Info window, a visual of the formula appears at right. However, if your formula is long, only a portion of it might appear. Click and drag the borders of the formula box to resize it.

– From the data table, edit the formula by clicking () next to the column name in the Columns panel.

Tip: To bypass the Column Info window when creating a formula, right-click the column and select Formula.
