Document Types

Statistica uses five principal document types:

Using these five document types, you can manage data of various types, perform data entry and analysis, generate graphs of the highest quality, develop custom applications of any degree of complexity, and create custom-formatted reports.

You can quickly access most recently-used documents. Click the Statistica Start button (on the lower-left corner of the screen), and select Documents. On the General tab of the Options dialog box, you can specify how many recently-used documents (up to sixteen) to display. For more detailed information about each document type, see the overviews for Spreadsheets, Graphs, Reports, Macros, and Workbooks.

Toolbars related to types of active document windows

Each of the main types of Statistica document windows (see above) manages data in a different way, and thus offers different customization and management options. These differences are reflected in the toolbars that accompany each type of window. See Spreadsheet, Graph, Report, and Macro toolbars for specific details. Menu commands for each of the main types of documents are described in the respective following topics: Spreadsheet, Graph, Report, and Macro menus.

Note:  That workbooks do not have a specialized toolbar (although the Standard toolbar is always available); however, when you are editing a spreadsheet, graph, report, or macro within a workbook, the toolbar(s) (and menus) relevant for that document type are available. When you select an "empty node" in the workbook tree pane, by default, the Statistics toolbar is displayed (in place of the specific document type toolbar) in order to maintain the same size and proportions of the application workspace.
