When Genstat starts up, unlike Excel, you do not have an empty spreadsheet open. However, you can set Genstat to automatically create an empty spreadsheet on start up.
- Select Tools | Options, then click the General tab.
- Select New spreadsheet and set the number of rows and columns as required, then click OK.
When you next start Genstat a blank spreadsheet will open automatically.
If the spreadsheet displays momentarily then disappears
If the spreadsheet displays for only a few moments and is then replaced with the Start page, it means you have the option Show start page selected on the General tab of the Tools | Options dialog (refer to image above). You can stop the Start page from appearing in future by deselecting this option.
- To re-display a hidden spreadsheet, click the Window tab at the bottom of the left hand panel.
The startup spreadsheet will appear as Book;1.
- Double-click the spreadsheet to bring it to the front.
