Procedure for the changepoint problem based on Mann-Whitney-Wilcoxon Statistiek is studied in Schechtman and Wolfe (1981). In this paper we give tables for the null distributions of the statistics for the one-sided and two-sided alternatives. We also report on some Monte Carlo power comparisons involving another nonparametric competitor, proposed by Pettitt (1979).
