2.2. Output Medium
One of the most popular aspects of UNISTAT Statistical Package is its ability to create output in Word and Excel, using the powerful automation features of these applications.
When UNISTAT is run in Stand-Alone Mode, by default, all output is sent to a WordPad-like window, which is an integral part of UNISTAT Statistical Package. In Excel Add-In Mode, the output is sent to a new worksheet within Excel by default. After this, it is possible to send the same output to a number of other applications, without having to run the procedure again. The Output Medium Toolbar allows you to send the output to Word, Excel, web browser or to the Windows system clipboard.
It is also possible to set any one of these output media as default, in which case, the output is created directly in the new Default Output Medium.
UNISTAT does not simply send the old style line printer output to these applications. Instead, it re-formats its output fully utilising the specific formatting capabilities of each application. When the Word button is clicked, UNISTAT will format its tables directly within Word, in the form of Word tables. Likewise, when the Excel button is clicked, output tables will be formatted in the form of Excel tables directly within Excel. When the browser button is clicked, UNISTAT creates an HTML file and formats the output as HTML tables.
In this way, it is possible to use Output Window as the primary preview window and send only the final results to Word (or Excel or web browser ) for inclusion in a final report.
In Stand-Alone Mode, UNISTAT can also send its output tables to its own spreadsheet (the Data Processor) for further analysis.
