When you record a particular GLM (or GRM, GDA, GLZ, GC&RT, GCHAID, etc.) analysis as a STATISTICA Visual Basic (SVB) Macro, you will see that, by default, all analyses are recorded via GLM syntax (or GRM, ...) . While this method of recording interactive GLM (GRM, ...) analyses yields a macro that will accurately reproduce analyses for even complex designs, it may be cumbersome to work with the syntax "model" when programming your own GLM (GRM, ...) procedures in SVB (e.g., by modifying a macro).

Therefore, as an alternative method for specifying standard designs
in SVB programs (macros), you can use the usual method of specifying variable
lists and codes, as implemented in most other analytic procedures (libraries)
of STATISTICA. The specific available
properties can be reviewed in the SVB Syntax Editor Object Browser
dialog, after selecting the STAGLM

You can specify variable lists, factorial designs to a specified degree (via property FactorialDegree), repeated measures (within-subject) effects, random effects, and details for stepwise and best-subset selection of predictors. For example, a program for analyzing a repeated measures design with two repeated measures factors and two factors may look like this:

Sub Main

Dim newanalysis As Analysis

' Create GLM analysis.

Set newanalysis = Analysis ( scGLM, ActiveDataSet )

newanalysis.Run

' Specify variables:

'

newanalysis.Dialog.Variables = " 3-8 |

' Specify repeated measures factors:

'

' There are 6 dependent variables that will be divided into

' the levels of the repeated measures factors).

newanalysis.Dialog.WithinEffects="Rep1
3

' Factorial degree = 1; i.e., evaluate main effects for

' categorical factors only

newanalysis.Dialog.FactorialDegree= 1

newanalysis.Dialog.SigmaRestricted= True

newanalysis.Run

' Summary ANOVA table

newanalysis.Dialog.TestOfAllEffects.Visible = True
