Applying T-Test on a collection of performance vectors

Hi. I have a collection of performance vectors. How can I apply pairwise t-test on them? I cannot select collection items synchronously and feed to t-test operator. I tried a couple of things and searched the forum, but I did not find anything useful and could not figure it out. Thanks.

    Hi,

     

    The T-Test operator indeed only accepts single performance vectors, no collections.  If you know in advance how many performance vector you will have, you can use the operator "Select" to pick them one by one and feed them into the T-Test operator (see process below).  This is of course only doable for small amounts of performance vectors.

     

    Hope this helps,

    Ingo

    Thank you so much. I was more inclined to solutions with loop and it was more consusing. There are about 30 vectors but it seems doable :) I am thinking one generate macro operator (to automate index values) together with a select operator wrapped in a subprocess and to copy it 30 times. Thank you again.
