1 CD Appendix A3 Excel Troubleshooting and Detailed Instructions for Office 1997, 2000, XP, and 2003 Before using this appendix please read CD Appendixes A1. If problems persist use this appendix to get exact instructions. The goal of this appendix is to help students resolve any problems they may encounter in using Microsoft Excel to produce statistical results. For each example we will show the dialog box we completed to produce the printout shown in the book. We ll start with the most frequently asked questions. Frequently Asked Questions Question 1.When I click the Tools button I do not see Data Analysis. How do I get it? Answer: Click the double arrow at the bottom of the dialog box to see all the items in the Tools menu. If Data Analysis is not shown, click Add-ins... The following box will appear. Click (put a check mark) in the Analysis ToolPak square and click OK. (Note that Analysis ToolPak - VBA is different from Analysis ToolPak.). When you return to the worksheet click Tools and Data Analysis will be on the menu.

2 If, after clicking Add-ins, Analysis ToolPak is not on the list you will have to install it. In Windows click Start, Settings, Control Panel, and Add/Remove Programs. You will need the CD that you purchased containing Microsoft Office. Question 2. When I click the Tools button I do not see Data Analysis Plus. How do I get it? Answer: Data Analysis Plus is the set of statistical techniques that accompany this book. There are three ways to put it on the Tools menu. a. Insert the CD that accompanies the book into the CD drive. If you follow the on-screen instructions the install software will load Data Analysis Plus onto Xlstart. When you start Excel Data Analysis Plus will be on the Tools menu. b. Insert the CD that accompanies the book. If the install routine starts click the Exit button. Open the folder (Right-click the icon and click Open or Explore. Open the folder Manual Install, then Keller 7, and Data Analysis Plus 5.0 and find the file Stats.xls, which contain the macros that constitute Data Analysis Plus. Copy it into the Xlstart folder.

3 c. Follow instruction 2 but instead of copying Stats.xls into Xlstart simply double-click. You will then be asked about the macro. Click the Enable Macros button. The drawback to this method is that when you exit Excel and start it again you will have to repeat the procedure. Methods a and b will keep Stats.xls in the Xlstart folder. When both Stats.xls and the Analysis ToolPak are installed the Tools menu should appear as follows. When you click Data Analysis the following dialog box will appear.

4 Clicking Data Analysis Plus produces this dialog box Question 3. How do I get help? Answer: Excel provides a number of explanations about its various functions. These include the add-ins listed in the Data Analysis menu. A separate help file for Data Analysis Plus is also available. It can be summoned in two ways. First, if you click the help button in any of the Data Analysis Plus dialog boxes the instructions for that dialog box will appear. Second, if you make an error when using Data Analysis Plus the appropriate help file will appear giving you the instructions that accompany that procedure. However, the first time you make an error or click the help button, Excel will ask where the help file is stored. If you used the install procedure the help file will be stored in XXX.

5 Question 4: How do I access Excel s built-in functions? Answer: In the following spreadsheet you can see the symbol fx (on the sixth line next to A1). After clicking fx Excel will show the next box. (The actual contents may not be the same as shown here.) Use the help button or follow the instructions provided in the book.

6 For each chapter in the book where we use Excel we will provide the actual dialog boxes and their contents. All readers need do is do exactly as we have done to produce the printouts exhibited in the book. Chapter 2 Example Open Xm Click fx and fill in the dialog box as we have done below.

7 3. Click OK and complete the next dialog box. Change the Criteria to 2, 3, 4, and 5 to count the number of 2s, 3s, 4s, and 5s. Example Open Xm In cell B1 type Bills. In cells B2 to B9 type 15, 30, 45, 60, 75, 90, 105, Click Data Analysis,,, and Histogram, and complete the dialog box as follows.

8 The following figure will be produced. Histogram Frequency Bills More Frequency 4. Right-click any of the blue rectangles and click Format Data Series. Click Options and the next dialog box will appear.

9 5. Reduce the Gap Width to 0. Click anywhere inside the box. Click Chart and Chart Options to make cosmetic improvements. Stem-and Leaf Display for Example Open Xm Click Data Analysis Plus and Stem and Leaf Display Fill in the dialog box. Note that you must use one of the increments listed in the Increment box.

10 Example Open Xm Click Data and PivotTable and PivotChart Report. The following box will be displayed. 3..Select Microsoft Office Excel list or database and PivotTable. Click Next>, which yields the following. 4. Ensure that the range is correct and click Next> and the box below is printed.

11 5. Select New Worksheet and click Layout. The next box will appear. 6. Drag the Newspaper field button to the ROW section of the box. Drag the Occupation button to the COLUMN section. Drag the Reader button to the DATA field. Here is what you get.

12 7. Double click the Sum of Reader button and click Count in the Summarize by box. (To compute column relative frequencies (or various other choices) click Options and in the Show data as box scroll down and click % of column.) 8. Click OK to close the PivotTable field box. Click OK to close the Layout box, and click Finish.

13 Bar charts for Example To draw three bar charts, one for each occupation depicting the four newspapers, we need to exchange Newspapers and Occupations in the pivot table. That is, in the pivot table drag the Newspaper icon to the column position and the Occupation icon to the row position. The result of these actions is shown next. Count of Rider Newspaper Occupation Grand Total Grand Total Place the cursor somewhere in the pivot table and click the Chart Wizard. Click Chart, Chart Type, and select the first chart. (To produce a three-dimensional bar chart, select the last chart.) Click Chart Options to improve the look of the chart. If you or someone else has created the contingency table Excel can draw bar charts directly from the table (without using the PivotTable and PivotChart). 1. Start with a table as shown in Table 2.9 without the row and column totals. (Open Xm02-08A.) 2. Highlight the complete table including the names of the occupations and newspapers. 3. Click the Chart Wizard. Excel will create 4 bar charts (one for each newspaper) of the occupations. To create 3 bar charts (one for each occupation) of the newspapers add an extra column to the table (as shown below) A B C D E Blue-collar White-collar Professional Extra G&M Post Star Sun Highlight the table and click the Chart Wizard. Delete the extra column. The result will be almost the same as the one produced from the Pivot Table.

14 Example Type or import the data into two adjacent columns. Store variable X in the first column and variable Y in the next column. 2. Click the Chart Wizard icon, select XY (Scatter) from chart type. 3. To make cosmetic changes click Chart and Chart Options Chapter 4 Example Open Xm Activate any empty cell. Click fx and select the category Statistical, and the function AVERAGE. This dialog box will appear.. In the Number 1 box specify the input range of the data (A1:A201). The mean will appear in the dialog box. Descriptive Statistics for Examples 4.2, 4.4, and Open Xm Click Tools, Data Analysis..., and Descriptive Statistics producing the following box. Specify the input Range (A1:A201) and click Summary statistics

15 Example 4.12 Follow the instructions for Descriptive Statistics. In the dialogue box click Kth Largest and type in the integer closest to 50. Repeat for Kth Smallest, typing in the integer closest to 50 as shown next.

16 Example Open Xm Click Tools, Data Analysis Plus, and Box Plot. The dialog box below will open. Specify the Input Range (A1:A201). Example Open Xm Follow the instructions to draw a scatter diagram. Highlight the columns containing the variables. The first column should store the independent variable and the second column, the dependent variable. 3. Click Chart Options and Add Trendline.

17 3. Select Linear and click Options. Select Display equation on chart. Chapter 5 Example Click Tools, Data Analysis..., and Random Number Generation. Complete the dialog box in the following way.

18 Column A will fill with 50 numbers that range between 0 and 1. 2 Multiply column A by 1,000 and store the products in column B. 3 Make cell C1 active, and click f x, Math& Trig,, ROUNDUP, and Next>. 4 Specify the first number to be rounded. B1 5 Type the number of digits (decimal places). Click Finish. 0 6 Complete column C. Chapter 7 Example Activate any empty cell.
