Thanks for the reply. It's not really the question I was asking, but I really like what you did. I think it solves my immediate problem in an oblique way, so thank you. That's pretty slick, I must say. I think I often get so used to typing in "reg y x" that I forget how easy it is just to calculate simple linear regression output manually. I think I'll expand a program like this for my permanent files. I haven't heard from anyone who knows about how the memory schema works, but I was wondering if there are any written resources on this. Does NC152 handle this at all?
