It is not totally clear what you are requesting because you have to copy and paste from Excel into Minitab. If you mean how do you get the data from the 5 columns (1 column per measurement) into a format that Minitab can analyze, you need to use Minitab's Data, Stack Columns command. Then tell Minitab that you want to stack columns X1 through X5.

Thanks for the reply but this is not what I meant.

I have a process with approximately 100 Jigs.

At each Jig I measure 5 points (X1 through X5)

and wish to calculate the limits for each of the 100 Jigs.

So basically I want to use the Xbar chart, in which each point is represented by an average of mentioned above 5 points - x1 through x5.

Ok, now the problematic part

All of the data for all of the Jigs is present in one excel file in form:

date | x1 | x2 | x3 | x4 | x5 | Jig#

and I need to calculate the limits for each of the 100 Jigs.

I know that I need to copy paste the information into minitab, but how to perform the calculation so I will receive limits per each Jig?
