Hello Dave,

I compared the results of your function for five data sets using the function contained in the SPC for Excel software (I am the developer of that). Results are identical so it looks like a good function to me.

In the below mentioned website, the Anderson Darling test is explained.
Can anybody tell me why there is a correction in the calculation of the Z-value (see column L of sheet 2 in the embedded excel-sheet of the below mentioned website).

The P value is not calculated as i/n. But corrected and is now calculated as (i-0,3)/(n+0.4)
Can anybody give some substantation of the used 0.3 and 0.4. The N is maximised at n=200.
