To show your colleagues the results of the shipping data analysis, you want to prepare a report that includes results from your Minitab sessions.
You performed several analyses, and you want to share the results with colleagues. Minitab’s Project Manager contains a folder, called the ReportPad, in which you can create simple reports.
You can add results to ReportPad by right-clicking on a graph or Session window output and then choosing Append Section to Report. You can also copy and paste text and graphs from other applications into ReportPad.
Add the paneled histogram, which you created in Graphing Data, to the ReportPad.
In Analyzing Data, you displayed descriptive statistics for the three regional shipping centers. Add the Session window output for the three shipping centers to the ReportPad.
To add multiple sections of Session window output to the ReportPad at the same time, do the following:
Customize the report by replacing the default title and adding a short comment to the graphical output.
You now have a simple report that illustrates some of your results. Minitab saves the ReportPad contents as part of the project.
You can save the contents of the ReportPad, as well as Session window output and worksheets, either as an .rtf file or an .html file.
Save your report as an .rtf file.
You can also create reports or presentations by sending graphs and Session window output directly to Microsoft Word or Microsoft PowerPoint.
Add the histogram and descriptive statistics results to Microsoft PowerPoint.
To add multiple sections of Session window output to Microsoft Word or Microsoft PowerPoint:
In the next chapter, you learn to prepare a Minitab worksheet. You enter data in a worksheet from multiple sources. Also, to prepare the data and simplify the analysis, you edit the data and reorganize columns and rows.
