In this example, we do simple statistics on sample data and then add the result to a table on graph.

  • Import a sample data.
  • Perform simple statistics.
  • Plot the data.
  • Add a table to the graph and fill it with the statistics result.
//Create a new workbook
newbook;
//Import a file
path$ = system.path.program$ + "Samples\Statistics\";
fname$ = path$ + "diameter.dat";
impasc;
wks.col1.type=1;
//Statisitcs and plot
stats 1 mean:=mymean sd:=mysd n:=myn min:=mymin max:=mymax sum:=mysum;
plotxy 1;

add_table_to_graph cols:=2 rows:=5 tabname:=TableName$ title:="Basic Statistics";

//Fill table content
range rr=[TableName$]1!col(1);
rr[1]$=Mean;
rr[2]$=SD;
rr[3]$=N;
rr[4]$=Min;
rr[5]$=Max;
range ss=[TableName$]1!col(2);
ss = {mymean, mysd, myn, mymin, mymax};
