##### Details

The name of the new variable must be a valid R object name (consisting only of upper and lower-case letters, numerals, and periods, and not starting with a numeral). Enter an R expression in the box at the right. The expression is evaluated using the active data set. Note that if this expression is later re-executed from the log window, it will be evaluated in the global environment; when the expression is re-evaluated, the active data set must be attached to the search path and the variables in the expression must not be masked by other variables of the same name.
