Datasheets

Datasheets display data and provide a simple datasheet editor to create and edit your data.

Here is an example of a datasheet:

As shown in the example, the left column of cells contains observation labels. The top row of cells contains variable names. The second row of cells contains variable types, which can be numeric, ordinal or category. The remaining cells of the datasheet contain the data. The datasheet can contain missing data, though currently ViSta cannot process data with missing values.

You can add rows or columns to the datasheet by clicking on the "New Obs" cell located below the left-hand column, or the "New Var" cell located to the right of the top row. Menu items let you add multiple rows or columns simultaneously. You can also control the width of columns and the number of decimal places shown via menu items.
