Enter and import data

To enter data, type it or paste it into the worksheet. You can also import Minitab files or CSV text files.

Type data manually

You can type data into cells in the data pane. Press Enter to go to the next row. Press Tab to go to the next column.

Copy and paste data

You can copy and paste data from a different Minitab worksheet or from a different application, such as Microsoft Excel or Numbers by Apple. If you paste data into a single cell of the worksheet, Minitab overwrites the contents of neighboring cells in order to paste all of the data from the clipboard. If you select multiple cells and paste data, Minitab pastes data into the selected cells and omits or repeats values to fill the paste area.
