MTB> set c6 DATA> 1:4 3(30) 2(7) DATA> end puts 1 2 3 4 30 30 30 7 7 into column c6. You also can create a data a unix with data and pass this data to the worksheet doing: MTB> read 'file' C1 Altenatively, you also can pass your data from the worksheet into unix by doing: MTB> write c1 'file' In your unix directory the file will be ending in .DAT. These commands work with several columns and matrices (see the minitab help).

It is possible to do simple arithmetic (add, subtract, multiply and divide and square roots). The next commands are self explanatory: MTB> let c3=c1+c2 MTB> let c3=c1-c2 MTB> let c3=c1*c2 MTB> let c3=c1/c2 MTB> let k1=sqrt(5) MTB> let k1=2**(1/3)
