"The best ever!"

WINKS 6 as released 
The NEW WINKS SDA 7 
Data Features in Version 6 
New Data Features in Version 7 

All WINKS Version 6 data files work with WINKS SDA 7. WINKS SDA 7 runs on Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit) and on all other recent releases of Windows. (Vista, XP, etc) 

The new WINKS 7 maintains all of the current features users have come to rely on, plus new enhancements that make data analysis easier and quicker. 
Limited variable labels 
Extensive variable labels: For example define BMI= Body Mass Index so the label will appear in output rather than the variable name. 
No variable formats 
Define variable formats: For example format GENDER to 1=Male and 2=Female, so Male and Female appear in output rather than 1 and 2. 

More intuitive data entry and cell editing. 
Do data calculations only by formula 
Menu specified data calculations:
 zscore (by group)
