Capturing a Script for a Data Table

Here are the basic steps for capturing a script to reproduce a data table:

1. Open the data table.

2. Make any changes that you need. For example, add a script, correct values, add new columns.

3. Capture the script to recreate your data table.


Use the data table from the previous example, where you saved a script to it.

1. In the data table, select the red triangle next to the data table’s name.

2. Select Copy Table Script.

3. Open a script window by selecting File > New > Script.

4. Select Edit > Paste.

You now have a script that duplicates your data table. You can save this script and run it at any time to recreate your data table, with all its scripts attached.
