Description bobharvey 2004-04-28 09:53:51 UTC
There is a very pretty set of regression fit tools to draw a best-fit line on XY
graphs.  But there seems to be no way to obtain the equation used for the line.

Some sort of accessibility would be helpful.  I can think of a range of
possibilities, from a display option on the graph to a matching spreadsheet
function that would return a suitable formula in a cell.

Spreadsheet is the wrong component. I changed it to Chart instead. Also it's
probably a double and fixed in the upcomimng new chart module.

Hello Frank:
"Spreadsheet is the wrong component. I changed it to Chart instead"
I can 
understand why you did that, but it presumes that the fix is to do it in the chart.  I originally chose 
"spreadsheet" as offering a wider range of possibilities - like doing it in the sheet without 
having to draw a chart at all.

Please note this issue has been incorrectly identified as a duplicate os Issue
366, which is an RFE on defining custom ranges for error bars, and has nothing
to do with regression analysis.

This confusion is resulting in inappropriate comments being filed in Issue 366
by confused members, which is beginning to effectively cloud Issue 366.

Thank you.
