Re: trendline gaussian

hi i have looked at oil.zip and have a few queries to clarify.
1) how is alpha, beta, scaling and x-shift obtained?
2) y must the values from Col L41 onwards be multiplied by M6?
3) what is the purpose of col M of residual?
OK, let's take a step back. What do you know about the Gamma function? These questions suggest to me that you have not plotted one before and you are not familiar with transforming data to fit distributions. Also, question 3 suggests that you are not familiar with regression.
Can you please tell me what you are actually trying to do. There is a danger that you are in a rabbit warren here and I do not want us to get lost.
What data do you have and what are you trying to do?
