Section Seven: Copying Tables to Microsoft Word

Exporting data from your statistical analysis

In this section of the tutorial, we will cover how to export the contents of your statistical analysis, so that it the table in the output window can be inserted into a Word document. Because it is difficult to copy tables in PSPP directly from the output window and directly into a Word document, the output must be exported first as an .odt (OpenDocument) file and opened in Word. From there, the table can be copied from the .odt file, and then pasted into your document.
