X-13-Data is a tool that can:

  • Convert data from Microsoft Excel to a text file in datevalue format that X-13ARIMA-SEATS can read.
  • Convert X-13ARIMA-SEATS output files in x12save format to a Microsoft Excel file.

The most recent release contains a redesigned user interface for converting X-13ARIMA-SEATS output to Microsoft Excel, allowing users to convert multiple output files into a single Excel file.

With this update, users will now be able to:

  • Convert multiple X-13ARIMA-SEATS output files to a single Microsoft Excel file.
  • Create worksheets organized by series or by file type.
  • Select file types by description or file extension.
  • Select series output to convert from a list of series or list of metafiles (text files often used in X-13ARIMA-SEATS containing a list of series).
  • Customize the order of the selection list of file types to make selecting frequently used file types easier.

X-13-Data now supports the following data frequencies for converting both from Excel to X-13ARIMA-SEATS and from X-13ARIMA-SEATS to Excel: annual, biannual, quarterly, bimonthly, and monthly.

This site contains distribution files and installation instructions below for Version 2.0 of X-13-Data, officially released in April 2015. Documentation for the program is also available.
