**Exit**

You will only succeed in activating the Edit menu after you have specified a data set to work with. So before you can do something with Edit, the program first has to read the data with one of the options of the File menu.

The Edit menu contains the following options:

**Edit variables**

**Edit tables**

By clicking on the appropriate button, you can go to the next or previous table. The tables are processed in the following order: V2 x V1, V3 x V1, V3 x V2, V4 x V1, V4 x V2, V4 x V3 ...

It should be noted that tables must be consistent, i.e. the marginal totals of a variable must be the same in each table in which this variable appears. If the tables are not consistent, it is not possible to carry out an analysis.

**Specify model**

You select a predictor variable by moving a variable in the middle column to the right, to the column with the name Predictors. You move a variable by selecting it in the middle column and clicking on the blue arrow-right button. You can move a variable back by selecting it in the column on the right and then clicking the red arrow-left button.

After you have specified your model, click on the Compute button to start computation. Note that computation can only be carried out if you specified a dependent variable and at least one predictor variable.

After computations have been completed, you first get an overview of the range of the estimates for the categories of the dependent variable. These estimates should lie within the range from 0 to 100. Negative values or values above 100 usually indicate an ill-fitting model.

After clicking on the OK button, the estimates are displayed on the screen. For each predictor variable there is a table with estimates. The values in the cells are the contributions of the categories of the predictor variables to the estimates of the percentages in the categories of the dependent variable. You can see these values as deviations from the precentages in the Average column. A contribution is only significant if its values is displayed in bold-face.

Note that values in the column Averages sum to 100%, and that the weighted values in a row of a table sum to 0%.

By pressing on the "Next" button you go to the next table of estimates. By pressing on the "Previous" button you go to the previous table of estimates.

**Display results**

Note that values in the column Averages sum to 100%, and that the weighted values in a row of a table sum to 0%.

By pressing on the "Next" button you go to the next table of estimates. By pressing on the "Previous" button you go to the previous table of estimates.

Use the Output menu to produce a report. You can either make a simple text file or an HTML file. You also have some choices of what to include in the report.

The Output menu only has one option:

**Specify output**

There is a set of radio buttons that controls the type of output file. You can choose for either a file in HTML format or a simple text file.

There is an input field in which can enter the name of the output file.

There is also a set of check buttons that controls the components that are included in the output file. The following options are available:

- All tables. All input tables are included.
- Coefficients. Tables with estimates of coefficients are included.
- Standard errors. Tables with standard errors of estimates of coefficients are included.
- Enhanced coefficients. Tables with estimates of coefficients are included. Significant values are displayed bold-face. This option only works for HTML output files.

The Help menu provides information about the program. There are two options:
