One of the most powerful aspects of UNISTAT Statistical Package is its ability to create presentation-quality reports in Microsoft Word and Excel.
When UNISTAT is run in stand-alone mode, by default, all output is sent to a WordPad-like window, which is an integral part of UNISTAT Statistical Package. In Excel add-in mode, the output is sent to a new worksheet within Excel by default. After this, it is possible to send the same output to a number of other applications, without having to run the procedure again. The Output Medium Toolbar allows you to send the output to Word, Excel, web browser or to the Windows system clipboard.
It is also possible to set any one of these output media as default, in which case, the output is created directly in the new default medium.
In this way, it is possible to use Output Window as the primary preview window and send only the final results to Word (or Excel or the web browser) for inclusion in a final report. In stand-alone mode, UNISTAT can also send its output tables to its own spreadsheet (the Data Processor) for further analysis.
Output to Excel
When Output to Excel button is clicked, output is sent to a new worksheet in the active workbook. Output is formatted in the form of Excel tables directly within Excel and the graphics are in scaleable enhanced metafile format. You can edit the Excel styles created by UNISTAT to change colours and fonts.
All numeric results from UNISTAT have the full 15-digit precision, though you can choose to display them with only the desired number of digits. This prevents the build-up of rounding errors when output from one procedure is used as input for another procedure.
Output to Word
UNISTAT does not simply send the old style line printer output to Word. Instead, it re-formats its output fully utilising the specific formatting capabilities of Word. When the Output to Word button is clicked, UNISTAT will format its tables directly within Word, in the form of Word tables.
Output is sent to the current document in Word, at the current cursor position. The graphics are in scaleable enhanced metafile format.
You can change the number of digits displayed for numbers from UNISTAT’s Tools / Options dialogue.
Output to the Web
Output is sent to the default web browser in the form of HTML tables and PNG format bitmap images.
The output is styled using CSS, allowing easy integration into web sites, wikis, blogs and other web-based applications.
UNISTAT Output Window
In stand-alone mode, by default, all output is sent to UNISTAT’s own Output Window. All text output is created in old style line printer format and displayed with a fixed-width font.
The graphic output is sent to this window in the form of an enhanced metafile object. The Output Window offers all the functionality of WordPad.
