Hello,

I am trying to find a deviation from a linear regression with Access.  I have two columns....

Weight (grams)         Food Consumption (grams)
55                                         200
54                                         205
44                                         190
56                                         222
34                                         122
66                                         230

Any Ideas?

Thank You!

You will need a first query (q1) to calculate the slope (m) and the intersection point (b). Then a query like this:

Select Weight, Food, Food - (m*Weight + b) as Deviation
From YourTable, q1
