Hi,

Anyone out there using Megastat? The course I am in requires using it/knowing how to use it for processes. Whenever I try to get a regression analysis it insists that I need to set a confidence level - I've tried different versions of typing 95%/0.95 into no avail, and I don't know what else in the data input it could be.

I am not familiar with that statistics package, but you should hit the down arrow at the right of the data entry and see what the valid options are. Select one of the available options.
It clearly says that it must be a number between 0 and 1. I would expect either 0.95 or 0.05 to be a valid entry, but maybe not one of the options available.
You could also check what information they give you when you click "Help"

I've done both of those things prior to writing on here, no changes or help there either. No matter which drop down option, an error occurs. I'll have to keep looking. Thank you for the answer.

Okay, the answer is to type "95" in the field!
