Abstract. Nonlinear regression using the spreadsheet Excel has appeared in the literature in several places. This paper extends the use of this technique to two other popular spreadsheets, Lotus 123 and Quattro Pro. Associated files, which can be downloaded, are included. These are the spreadsheet templates and ScreenCam movies that illustrate the use of equation solvers for minimization in these spreadsheets.
