03/23/2020OriginLabHi origintest123abc,

We have upgraded this app to fix a bug in the older version 2019b, so I will suggest you to upgrade your Origin to Origin 2020.


03/22/2020origintest123abcCloud you please provide a download link to version for Origin 2019b.
Thank you.

09/22/2019TZZGraphics are not available for 26 groups of data. The program remains unresponsive. How to solve this problem?

08/28/2019OriginLabHi srikesh,

In terms of mean comparison plot, ANOVA and repeated ANOVA generate the same result.

06/11/2019srikeshcan one way repeated measures anova be done using this?

04/12/2018OriginLabHi, dgstrawm

In regard to the input data format, the APP also support paired comparison for two way ANOVA, we don't want to make GUI complex so we decided to only support index data mode (data/group)

However, you can convert your data to be index data mode with our Stack Columns tool (menu "Worksheet: Stack Columns").

Currently it uses Turkey method for means comparison. We are working on a new version of this APP, which will provide option of post-hoc method.
