Data file management
There are two ways to have your data on SciStat.com. You can upload a data file, or you can just create a new empty file and enter the data on the website, but uploading a file in Excel or MedCalc format is the most convenient.

If you do not want to upload or enter any data at this point, the system has already created a file on your account, and you can start playing with the data in this file.
