Creating a script

To create a script within Prism:

1.

Click the Prism button (or drop file menu) and choose Run Script

2.

Choose to make a new script

3.

Choose to start with a blank screen, or to start with a copy of an existing script.

4.

Enter or edit the script on the left side of the GraphPad Prism Script dialog. Use the right side to review script syntax.

5.

Repeatedly click ‘1 step’ to step through the script. You can watch the result in Prism, as well as observe the script log.

6.

Click “12 steps’ if you are feeling lucky.

7.

Click ‘Run” when you are convinced the script will run without error. The Script dialog will minimize, as will Prism, while the script runs.

Click the Prism button (or drop file menu) and choose Run Script

2.
