Hi again,

I am just wondering how I can proceed with my research with Mathlink for
Excel. I used Excel to create a pairwise comparison tables (Table 1: X
(compared to all other countries) ... Table 2: Y (compared to all other
countries -X), etc.
Is there any shortcut in using Mathlink for Excel to achieve the below
mentioned aim?
Please advise.

different groups (lets denote them as X,Y,Z,etc.)Consequently, I came up
with 78 propensity values for country X.Knowing that there is a symmetry of
propensity values,i.e. (propensity of group X working together with group Y)
XY = YX - I calculated some 91 values in the following way:

algorithm that would check whether this is true for YZ,YD.
