Include or Exclude

Specify whether to include or exclude rows from the control chart.

Specify Which Rows to Include/Exclude

All rows/No rows
Include or exclude all rows.
Rows that match
Include or exclude rows that match specified conditions. Click Condition to enter the conditional expression.
Brushed rows
Include or exclude all brushed rows.
Row numbers
List the rows to include or exclude. Use a colon (:) to denote an inclusive range. For example, enter 1 4 6:10 to signify the rows 1, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10.

Leave gaps for excluded points

Leave a space in the graph for the points that you exclude. Minitab treats these values as missing values in the calculations, which affects the estimates of the control limits.
