Also combines sets of single matrices, with equal rows, column wise into a larger matrix. If A1, A2, ... AN are all matrices with R rows and C1, C2, ... CN columns respectively then these are merged into the R by C1 + C2 + CN matrix (A1 A2 ... AN).

Certain UCINET routines permit the analysis of multiple relations on the same set of actors. This routine can create a single data file which brings together all the relevant networks or matrices and makes them suitable for analysis.

Names of datasets each containing one or more matrices. The names should be entered in the order required in the merged data set. To enter a file, highlight one or more files in the

Defines which method is to be used.

Choices are:

Matrices combine row-wise creating extra rows. Each matrix must be a single relation with an equal number of columns.

Matrices combine column-wise creating extra columns. Each matrix must be a single relation with an equal number of rows.

Matrices appended as additional matrices or relations. Networks must all have the same dimensions.

Name of the file which will contain merged dataset.

If Rows has been selected and the original matrices do not have row labels then the new row labels are of the form i-j indicating that the row was formed from row j of matrix i.

If Columns has been selected then the new columns are labeled in a similar way to Row labels described above.

If Matrices has been selected then each relation is numbered sequentially.
