How do I access the sample data?
29 September 2014
The help file included with statistiXL includes worked examples for every statistics module that comes with statistiXL. You can open the workbooks containing the sample datasets used in these examples in order to follow through the steps listed in the help.
The easiest way to open these workbooks is from within the help file itself. Each example in the help file includes a reference to the original source of the data used followed by a link to the sample workbook containing the data. In the ANOVA example below, the data is from Zar 1999 and the sample workbook is called anova.xls.
Simply click on the name of the workbook to open it up in Excel. The workbooks are actually embedded within the help file so can be opened even if you only have the help file available and not the statistiXL add-in.
As an alternative to accessing the sample workbooks through the help file, they are also placed in an examples folder within the folder where you installed statistiXL on your hard drive. This is typically “c:\program files\statistixl” on 32 bit systems or “c:\program files (x86)\statistixl” on 64 bit systems. You can open these workbooks as you would any of your own workbooks, using the file/open option within Excel.
