PURPOSE Edit or create a UCINET dataset using a spreadsheet style editor.

DESCRIPTION All UCINET data files store the data as a matrix.  Upon execution of this routine a spreadsheet style editor is invoked.  The spreadsheet layout is very similar to that found on other spreadsheets such as Excel, and hence should be familiar to most users.

Each element of the data occupies a cell in the spreadsheet.  The data matrix is displayed exactly in matrix form.  The user can move around the matrix using the keys , , and to move from one cell to an adjacent cell, and by using the scroll bars to move around the whole dataset. If there is more than one matrix then the tabs at the bottom can be used to move between matrices.   When the cursor is located in a particular cell the position of the cursor is recorded on the screen in terms highlighted row and column numbers of the cell.  

If the rows and/or columns are labeled then the labels are displayed at the top and side of the screen.
  If your data is symmetric click the Asymmetric mode button before you enter any data this will automatically fill in the other half of your data. You need only enter the non-zero values in the spreadsheet, once these have been filled in then click on the button marked Fill all empty cells will be given a value of zero up to the dimensions specified. If your data has more than one relation then add the extra matrices using the edit button and selecting insert sheet. 

The editor allows some simple analysis and transformations. These are exactly the same routines as contained in the menu and the user should read the help files associated with these to obtain relevant information.
