Turn a Table in a JMP Report Into a Matrix

You can create a JMP matrix from a report table. For example, when working with JMP Scripting Language (JSL), you might want to access a report’s table that has been stored into a JSL variable. Or, you might want to store a report table’s values into a table property as either a table property or as a JSL assignment, which is stored within the data table and is accessible via a script or the Formula Editor.

To store a table in matrix form into a global variable, into a table property, or into a table property as an assignment:

1. Right-click anywhere in a report table.

2. Select Make into Matrix.

3. In the window that appears, tell JMP how you want to store the table.

4. (Optional) Rename the variable or property by entering a new name into the box beside Name.
