With the XLMiner Analysis ToolPak App, you can perform statistical analyses of the same types available in the Analysis ToolPak in desktop Microsoft Excel. The App provides all 19 interactive functions included in the Excel Analysis ToolPak, plus a 20th function often requested by users, logistic regression. Task Pane input fields and worksheet output will be very familiar to Excel Analysis ToolPak users.
The 20 functions provided by the App are listed below. For all the functions listed below except Logistic Regression, you will find that online Help for the Excel Analysis ToolPak generally applies to the corresponding functions in the XLMiner Analysis ToolPak App. The steps in setting up a Logistic Regression analysis are the same as those for a Linear Regression, but the output or Y variable will have a binary value (0 or 1). For background, we suggest LogisticRegressionAnalysis.com.

Results from the App will generally match the Excel Analysis ToolPak, as seen in many textbooks, screen images and videos. The App's Random Number Generation function uses the well-known Mersenne Twister algorithm, also used in Excel's RAND built-in function; the Excel Analysis ToolPak uses an older random number generator algorithm.
Note that the worksheet functions provided by the "Analysis ToolPak - VBA" add-in for Excel are not available in Excel Online, or in this App (it is not yet possible for Apps to create user-defined functions).
