Sipina add-in for Excel 2007 and 2010

SIPINA is a Data Mining Software which implements various supervised learning paradigms. This is an old tool but it is still used because this is the only free tool which provides fully functional interactive decision tree capabilities.

This tutorial briefly describes the installation and the use of the add-in "sipina.xla" into Excel 2007. The approach is easily generalized to Excel 2010. A similar document exists for Tanagra . It seemed to me nevertheless necessary to clarify the procedure, especially because several users have made the request. Other tutorials exist for earlier versions of Excel (1997-2003)  and for Calc (Libre Office and Open Office).

A new tutorial will come soon. It shows that the add-in operates properly also under Excel 2016.
