Getting Started

Let JMP Write Your Scripts

You often have to produce the same reports for the same data on a regular basis. This chapter shows you how to let JMP write scripts for common tasks like importing text data, opening Microsoft Excel files, and producing reports. A final tutorial shows you how to put it all together into a single script to open an Microsoft Excel file and produce three reports automatically.

The Scripting Guide is written for users who are familiar with JMP but might not be familiar with JSL. For more information about performing common tasks, see Using JMP. Discovering JMP is also a good resource for learning basic concepts and understanding the JMP workflow.
