LINEST_F - script function
This script function returns
the aggregated F statistic (r2/(1-r2)) of a linear
regression defined by the equation y=mx+b for a series of coordinates
represented by paired numbers in x-expression and y-expression iterated
over a number of records as defined by a group
LINEST_F (y_value, x_value[, y0 [, x0 ]])
Return data type: numeric
||The expression or field containing the range of y-values to be measured.
||The expression or field containing the range of x-values to be measured.
value y0 may be stated forcing
the regression line to pass through the y-axis at a given point. By stating
both y0 and x0 it is possible to force the regression line to pass through a single fixed coordinate.
y0 and x0
are stated, the function requires at least two valid data-pairs to calculate.
and x0 are stated, a single data
pair will do.
Text values, NULL values and missing values in any or both pieces of a data-pair result in the entire data-pair being disregarded.
