Dear Sir

Thank you for a very useful site!

However, I am unable to use the Realstat add-in due to the lack of 64-bit version. How is your implementation going?

Best regards

Anders,

Sorry, but I am not currently working on a 64 bit version. This is on my list of future enhancements, but so far the demand hasn’t been high enough that I have prioritized this enhancement over others.

Hi there,

Please can you tell me how to do a PROBIT regression analysis to determine the detection limit of the method I am testing. Which function in Real Stats can do this.

Thanks so much

Anita

Anita,

The Real Statistics Resource pack doesn’t yet support Probit regression. It is similar to logistic regression. I expect to add this capability shortly.

Charles

I have placed xlam file at D:\Users\sahuja\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\AddIns. Some of references in Examples-Part-1, Part-2 don’t seem to resolve. Like I am seeing #NAME? in cov sheet where its showing =’D:\Users\sahuja\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\AddIns\RealStats.xlam’!COVARP(B4:B11,C4:C11). Several other sheets work fine. Please help.

Sanjeev,

You can use Excel’s Replace capability to replace all instances of =D:\Users\sahuja\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\AddIns\RealStats.xlam’! by =

See http://www.real-statistics.com/free-download/examples-installation/ for more details.

Charles

Thanks for the Response. I have replaced as suggested in entire workbook still problem persists. For eg the formula bar on clicking the cell with #Name? shows =RESHAPE(A5:C8). I tried to copy the Input range from somewhere else in sheet and write corresponding output formula in other cell but still its giving #Name?.I am using Excel 2013.

To me it looks to issue in loading of RealStats.xlam functions as when I click the cell with #Name? it shows =RESHAPE(A5:C8) in formula bar and now select Insert Function, the function popup shows the name RESHAPE with parameters but below it writes undefined.

I have one observation through ‘Show Calculation Steps’ on selecting the call displaying #Name?, for eg: In Reformat sheet, I select cell with =RESHAPE(A5:C8) in formula bar, and now when I see ‘Show Calculation Steps’ it references Reformat!$E$5 and in this execution it gives #Name?(A5:C8)

May be this info might be helpful in diagnosing the issue?

Sanjeev,

What do you see when you enter the formula =VER() in any blank cell?

Charles

On entering =VER(), getting #NAME?. On checking with ‘Show Calculation Steps’ it references Reformat!$P$17 (Cell number).

Sanjeev,

In this case, the Real Statistics add-in has not been installed or has not been installed correctly.

You need to download and install the Real Statistics Resource Pack before you can use the examples workbooks. See the following webpage:

http://www.real-statistics.com/free-download/real-statistics-resource-pack/

I am not sure what sort of difficulty you are having, but I just downloaded the software without any problems. See

Charles

Sorry to bother you about this simple question:

Does the table presented in Sheet TOC0 of Real-Statistics-Multivariate-Examples.xlsx

represent 120 student ratings of 9 traits or criteria for only ONE professor?

The corresponding web page states “…observed data for each of these (9) variables.”

(Beyond that, Professor Zaiontz deserves a Nobel Prize for these outstanding tools.)

Roland,

I guess you are referring to the data for Principal Component Analysis or Factor Analysis.

The ratings aren’t for any specific professor or professors, but for the students’ ideal professor.

Thanks for your kind words about me.

Charles

Thanks Prof for sharing. I am really enjoy your detail explanation.

Great software but after downloading the latest version it seems to not have the Scheirer-Ray-Hare Test as detailed in your blog post:

http://www.real-statistics.com/two-way-anova/scheirer-ray-hare-test/

the two way ANOVA options has only the first four options listed in the above link and not the SRH test? Has the test been removed?

Even the help only lists the four test options.

Thanks.

Bryan,

The latest version has seven options. The help lists all seven options.

Charles

Bryan,

Are you using Release 4.11? You can check by using the formula =VER(). The latest version has seven options for the Two Factor ANOVA data analysis tool.

Charles

No, I am not it turns out, I have 3.2.2 but then I downloaded it directly from the above links maybe ten minutes before I posted the message.

Bryan.

Re-downloaded it and now all is good.

Thanks again.

Bryan,

That was probably the version for Mac, which does not yet contain the test that you are looking for.

Charles

Hi Charles,

Thank you for creating these useful tools for Excel, and I was wondering if you could make the same tools in 64-bit version? Sometimes, I have a very large dataset (containing large amount of array formulas), and 32-bit Excel can only use 2GB Ram as pointed out at https://support.microsoft.com/en-nz/kb/3066990.

Thanks again for giving us the basic statistics knowledge on this website.

Hi Charles.

I have a question about installation of Excel.

I am using 2011 version of Excel with Mac.

but whenever I try to check the real-estate and solver, “errors over loading dll”comes up and I can’t see real stats installed.

How can I deal with it?

thanx and this is a very nice program BTW.

Sandra,

Are you saying that you can’t check both RealStats 2011 and Solver?

Charles

Yes, I tried to check both at the same time at first, which didn’ work well so checked solver first and real stats next. but it didn’t work, too. I checked real stats only but it didn’t work…Should I install new Excel ?

Sandra,

All I can think of is to try unchecking RealStats and reinstalling from the beginning.

Hi Charles,

Please let me know what versions of Excel and Windows can use your program. I have students that have Windows 10 and Excel 2016 and others with Excel 2013. I also have students that are still running Windows 7 and Windows 8. I also have some students that have MACs that run Excel 2016 and others that run Excel 2013. Do these differences matter or will Real Statistics run on any combination of operating system and version of Excel?

Thanks in advance,

Ken Burger

Ken,

The software will run on Windows 7, 8 and 10 (and probably XP as well). It supports Excel 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016.

The software will also run on Mac OS, supporting Excel 2011 and 2016 (I don’t believe there is an Excel 2013 version for the Mac, but if there is then the software should support that as well). The Windows version of the software has more capabilities than the Mac version.

Charles

Charles,

Thank you very much for your prompt response. I will download today and check it out.

Ken

It would be great if you could put the Excel version requirements on the home page, as I had trouble finding this info here. I only have Excel 2000 and LibreOffice Calc 5 (2016), neither of which have the modern Excel macro commands.

Sorry about that, Max. I didn’t know that people were still using such old versions of Excel. I support Excel 2002 and beyond.

Charles

Hello sir

I read the comments and complaints alongside your helpful response and I am amazed and for which I say thanks for helping our research students

On my own, I would have loved if you send or work in here for me, a practical model formulation process so that I can easily state my research model properly as I need to know how best to present a model of one dependent and 3 independent variable and how to go about the coding and regression analysis

Thanks so much

You can learn more about building a regression model by going to the http://www.real-statistics.com/regression-models/ webpage. Most likely you will use a multiple linear regression model, which you can find described on the webpage http://www.real-statistics.com/multiple-regression/.

Hello sir I am getting a message popup”Compilation error in hidden module ” That’s why Logistic regression is not working in my project.Help me and Thanks in advance

Sachin,

If you are using Excel 2007, a likely reason for this is that you need to install the latest service pack, namely SP3.

Otherwise, it is possible that you need to install Excel’s Solver, as described in the next paragraph.

The latest version of the software uses Excel’s Solver, and so you need to make sure that Excel’s Solver is installed. You do this by pressing Alt-TI (i.e. hold down the Alt key and press T and I) and making sure that there is a check mark next to Solver in the dialog box that appears. Then close Excel and reopen Excel.

How do you calculate the Probability Density Function (pdf) ?

I understand formula normsdist(z,false) is the one to use; however, in Excel 2007 that does not work – it works without the FALSE argument. If I enter FALSE, or TRUE, I get an error message as the formula is not set up to accept the TRUE or FALSE.

Is it possible to calculate the pdf using your add-in ?

Carlos,

You can use =NORMDIST(x,0,1,FALSE) in Excel 2007.

Excel 2007 also doesn’t provide the pdf for the t distribution. In this case you can use the Real Statistics function T_DIST(x,df,FALSE).

1. After install, it asked for “RealStats Password”

2. During using chi-square test, “Compile error in hidden module: ChiSquare”

Terry,

In order to figure out what is going wrong I have the following questions:

1. When someone is asked to give a password, this usually means that they are trying to open the RealStats-2007 file. You should never need to supply the password. Since you are getting the correct value for =VER(), this usually means that you were able to install the software properly (as described on the Download webpage. Is this what you did?

2. Are you able to use any of the Real Statistics data analysis tools? E.g. the Descriptive Statistics and Normality data analysis tool. Does the version of Office 2007 also include Outlook and Access?

2. Unable. Including Outlook only.

Terry,

I have recently heard from others who are having problems specifically with Excel 2007 as part of Office 2007 Professional.

Gabriel,

The version that you downloaded has worked in German, Italian, Spanish and several other languages. There appears to be a large user population in Brazil, and so it probably also supports Portuguese.

Uninstall is similar to Install. Assuming that you are using Windows, press Alt-TI and unclick RealStats from the dialog box that appears and press the Close button. That’s all you need to do.

I installed it and can open the console via Strg + m. However, if I try to actually active the formulas (e.g. the correlation matrix) I always receive an error saying (roughly, it’s in German):

I don’t know what is causing this problem. I know that some other people have experienced similiar problems, but the software seems to run fine for most people.

Do use see the version number when you enter =VER() in any cell in a worksheet? (if not the installation was not performed correctly) Are you by any chance running the 64 bit version of Excel? (select File > Help to find out) Are you able to get the software working on some other computer?

The =VER() command works, showing me Version 3.5.2. I’m using the 32bit Excel, so that can’t be it. I don’t have another machine available currently to test your last question.

Hi Jianguo,

It is not sufficient to download the software. You also need to install the software. You do not need a password to do this. Please follow the following steps:

To install the software select

Office Button > Excel Options > Add-Insin Excel 2007 orFile > Help|Options > Add-Insin Excel 2010/2013, it is important that you look for theGobutton at the bottom of the window. You need to click on this button.Once you do this you should be presented with a dialog box as described in the instructions. If you have already put the Real Statistics Resource Pack file in the appropriate add-in directory you should see its name on the list shown, in which case you need to make sure that the file is checked. If not, you will need to search for it by pressing the

Browsebutton on the dialog box.Please let me know if this doesn’t work for you.

Hi Charles,

This is a wonderful add-on and am enjoying using it for teaching postgrads online . Have a window that keeps asking for a password though. Can’t seem to get rid of it…

/steve

Hi Steve,

Pleased to read that you are using the software to teach postgraduate students.

I don’t know why you would receive a window requesting the password. The only reason I can think of for this happening is if you try to open the add-in. In that case you would certainly receive a request for the password. As you have seen you can use the software without needing a password.

In any case it is not great to keep being badgered for a password. Perhaps I can figure out how to get rid of the request. Which version of Excel are you using? Can you send me a screen capture of the window that asks for the password (using the PrntSrn key or Window’s Snipping Tool)?

Charles

Charles, I downloaded the package, but when I went to customize my ribbon, I could not find the macro.

Unfortunately this is a common problem. I don’t have a solution yet. For now simply press

I have downloaded the resource pack, but it won’t let me add it in as an add-in. It keeps saying RealStats.xlam is not a valid add-in. Any ideas? I am running Office 2003 so perhaps that is the problem?

Roger,

The Real Statistics Resource Pack add-in should operate correctly with Excel 2007, 2010 and 2013. I have not tested it with Excel versions before Excel 2007. In particular the file extension of the add-in that is supplied is .xlam. The file extension for Excel 2003 add-ins is .xla. In the next couple of days I will try to to save the Real Statistics Resource Pack add-in in the older .xla format. If so I will put this version on the website for downloading. I would appreciate it if you would then tell me if this version works on your computer.

Update(29 Aug 2013). You can now download the Excel 97/2003 version of the Real Statistics Resource Pack from webpage http://www.real-statistics.com/free-download/real-statistics-resource-pack/. Please let me know whether it works on your computer.This looks like a very good thing for me who still runs Excel 2003. I would like to try this out, but where on the page is the link to the .XLA file?

Cheers

Robert

Robert,

I am trying to get an .XLA version running now. I hope to have this available later this week.

Charles

Robert,

I added the .XLA version of the software earlier this month. Have you been able to download it? Is it working properly?
