2.6.10 The Statistics Window
The Statistics window can be found under View > Statistics in the Entry Window. New in N1MM Logger+ is provision of graphical as well as tabular presentation of data. Select either by clicking the tabs at the top of the screen.
Or you can present the same data in graphical form. Be forewarned, this is not a PJ2T log - that call is just an example.
The graphical representation really comes into its own when the data are more complex. For example, if you want to know at a glance which bands were most productive when, graph hours versus bands.
TipDuring a contest, if you are checking Statistics and a station comes back, just start typing. The statistics window will go to the background and every typed characters will go to the Entry window.
The Statistics window allows you to select almost all database fields from a contest for display in tabular form by row and column, or in graphical form. The following table explores the options and their usefulness in various contexts.
