Edit Tables

There are several ways to edit items that you add to a table. You can delete items, remove column labels, or edit statistical key words or labels.

Delete Items

After you add items to the table, you can remove them in any one of the following ways:

Drag the item away from the table.

To remove the last item, click Undo.

Right-click an item and select Delete.

Remove Column Labels

Grouping columns display the column name on top of the categories associated with that column. For some columns, the column name might seem redundant. Remove the column name from the column table by right-clicking on the column name and selecting Remove Column Label. To re-insert the column label, right-click one of its associated categories and select Restore Column Label.

Edit Statistical Key Words and Labels

You can edit a statistical key word or a statistical label. For example, instead of Mean, you might want to use the word Average. Right-click the word that you want to edit and select Change Item Label. In the box that appears, enter the new label. Alternatively, you can type directly into the edit box.

If you change one statistics keyword to another statistics keyword, JMP assumes that you actually want to change the statistics, not just the label. It would be as if you have deleted the statistics from the table and added the latter.
