This enables you to load data directly into Genstat from a variety of sources, as follows:
- ASCII files where data are specified in columns
- Resume – Genstat Save File (.gsv) where data has been saved previously using the Save command.
- Data files – Genstat spreadsheet (.gsh), other spreadsheet and data formats.
- From Clipboard where data are in column format on the clipboard.
- ODBC Data and Retrieval files
- From URLs
This lets you save the current Genstat data as a .gsv file, allowing you to reopen it later and continue where you left off. You can load data in this format back into Genstat using Data | Load | Resume. Note that the data are saved using a RECORD statement.
Clear All Data
This deletes all current data structures from Genstat, by issuing an ENDJOB command. Data in open spreadsheet windows can be restored to Genstat using the Spread | Update menu.
Calculates new data using any general expression.
Transforms a data variate according to a transformation chosen from a list of common transformations.
Interpolate to predict values at intermediate points in (X,Y) data.
Performs standard unit conversions for different types of measurements.
Performs matrix calculations using a subset of functions from the general Calculations menu.
Performs Boolean arithmetic on sets contained within variates.
Performs probability calculations for a range of discrete and continuous distributions.
Performs calculations with tables to create new tables.
Takes a slice of a table to produce a new table with a subset of the levels of the original table.
Table Combine Levels
Combines levels in a table to produce a new table with fewer levels.
Sorts levels in a table to produce a reordered table.
Generate Random Sample
Generates a random sample from a chosen distribution.
This performs a random permutation of the units for a set of factors and/or variates.
Calculates the ranks of values within a sample.
Form a text progression where the items in a text are created by a sequence of characters with a common offset (e.g. AA, AB, .. ZZ).
Form Groups (Factors)
Converts data from a variate or text into a factor.
Form Multiple-response factors
Produces multiple-response factors from a set of variates or text structures coding individual responses.
Form Similarity Matrix
Forms a symmetric matrix containing similarities between each pair of
observations based on data contained in a set of variates.
Appends a set of vectors of the same type (factor, text, or variate) into a single vector of the same type.
Forms a new vector containing a subset-menu of the values of an existing one.
Reshapes a data set with classifying factors for rows and columns,
into a reorganized data set with new identifying factors
Display Data in Output
This opens the Display Data in Output menu that allows the output of selected structures to the Output window.
