Greek New Testament For Data Analysis, Keith L. Yoder Dec 2016

Greek New Testament For Data Analysis, Keith L. Yoder

Keith L. Yoder

Updated: 18 December 2017
This Excel data file (compatible with Excel 2007 and later versions) is an extract of my working Greek New Testament database which I use for statistical and data analysis. It originated in the early 2000's from UBS3 data files in beta code I obtained from CCAT, and has since been evolving through countless changes and corrections. A flat-file table display such as Excel 2007+ is the best format suitable for Autofilter and VBA applications, without involving a more complex XML format. The file itself may be opened with Excel 2007 or later versions, or with ...
