Which stats package is the best for medical research?

My Vaio is corrupt, and I cannot open SPSS, but I have Excel in my desk top. Can I do the similar analysis using Excel??? until I get SPSS back?

Not really. Excel is only equipped to do basic stuff, unless you're good at writing macros (VBA programs).

I think you're going to need to get SPSS running again.

Minitab is great - but your original question was about packages used in medical research - I know SAS and SPSS are the most commonly used in that field.

Minitab is a great package, but I don't think it's used as widely in the biomedical field.
