Work with the Log

The Log in JMP has two modes:

Enhanced Log in JMP

Text Log in JMP

You can switch between the two modes by selecting File > Preferences > Log.

Note: The log shows the steps you take during data cleanup. For example, if you add a column property or import the data into Excel, then the JSL expressions for those actions are captured in the log. This enables you to clean up the data more efficiently when you receive a new data set.
