Note: When you select Analyze > Fit Model in a data table that has a script named Model (or model), the launch window is automatically filled in based on the script.

The Fit Model launch window contains the following major areas:

Select Columns is a list of the columns in the current data table. If the current data table contains excluded columns, they do not appear in the list. For more information about the options in the Select Columns red triangle menu, see Column Filter Menu in Using JMP.

Pick Role Variables contains standard JMP launch window buttons. For a description of these buttons, see Fit Model Launch Window Elements.

Construct Model Effects contains options that you use to enter effects into your model. See Construct Model Effects.

Personality is a list of the model types that you can choose from. Once you have selected a personality, different options appear, depending on the personality that you have selected. See Fitting Personalities.
