Reading Minitab Worksheets

Stat/Transfer reads Minitab columns.  It does not read the constants or matrices that may be stored in Minitab worksheets.


Version 12 of Minitab introduced a new project file type that may contain several worksheets along with other data.  Stat/Transfer does not extract separate worksheets from these project files.  You will need to use Minitab to save the worksheets you wish to transfer as separate worksheet files.


Stat/Transfer reads Minitab Versions through 14.
