Excel isn't a statistics program - it's a spreadsheet program that can be used to do simple statistics, along with many other math functions.

For a REAL stats program - expensive, SPSS. For relatively inexpensive - JMP.

Back "then", I would enter the 1500 or so records, each with 50-75 observation. Push the button, and go home for the night. All that cranking away on a 25Mhz 040 machine.
I was using the Mac version of SPSS in those days, too. When the situation called for serious number-crunching, though, I had access to another computer, an Amdahl 6360 mainframe, which also used SPSS. Nowadays, I'll bet that my humble G4 has more number-crunching power than that ol' mainframe. Times change!

Cheers :-. Bill
