Smart Data Import

Easily correct for case mismatches, properly represent missing data, remove extra spaces, and make column lengths equal when importing data from Excel and other file types.

Automatic Graph Updating

Graphs and control charts update automatically when you add or edit data so you never have to worry about keeping your graphs in sync.

Seamless Data Manipulation

Explore your data right in the worksheet. Format columns to instantly identify and subset the most frequent values, outliers, out-of-spec measurements, and more.

Effortless Presentations

Export graphs and output directly to Microsoft Word or PowerPoint to easily create presentations and share your results with colleagues.

Data Cleaning

An improved data import makes it easier than ever to clean your data before they reach the worksheet:

  • Identify and correct case mismatches

  • Represent missing data properly

  • Remove blank rows and extra spaces or characters

  • Make column lengths equal

 

Copy/Paste Warning

Before you begin your analysis, ensure you copy/paste your data correctly with a new warning that safeguards against improperly formatted columns. Minitab alerts you if data with column names have been pasted in the wrong row of the worksheet, and corrects them for you.

Quality Trainer Access

Now you can use the Tools menu to access your subscription to Quality Trainer, our e-learning course that teaches you statistics and how to analyze your data with Minitab. Don't have a subscription? Learn more.

Conditional Formatting

Explore your data directly in the worksheet with a simple right-click. Format columns to instantly identify the most frequent values, out-of-control points, out-of-spec measurements, and more.

Subset and Sort

Use enhanced subset and sort options for greater visibility into your data. For example, you can use conditional formatting to identify the most frequent defects, and then subset your data to investigate their relationship to other variables.
