Hi mfs,

Yes, download the new version, uninstall your old version and then install the new version. You won't need to re-register or anything.

Dev, therefore I should un-install Clin Tools and re-install it. Will I need a code or will it recognize me and automatically allow me to download it. mfs

Mea Culpa - I had it disallowing Odds Ratios less than zero (for obvious reasons) and didn't change the code for when the input was d. Please try the new version (will be uploaded in about an hour) and let me know how it works.

Best,
Dev

ps. Following on from Chin the multiplier is (to two decimal places) 1.81 not 1.65.

Program does not seem to handle negative d values. For example.
 
OR = exp(-.71*1.65) = .309

Program only allows positve values so a value of -.71 must be entered as .71
When .71 is entered the results from the program are  = 3.624.

The reciprocal of 3.624 = .2759
