?path=rama_rdty&height=32 Rama Raditya 6 posts Thank you for fast answer in my previous question. I got another problem in Forio.
This my new model
The question is why Forio automatically converted SIMSTEP to STEP ? I want to use simstep to return the value in my array for every time step. I use time step based on this guide:
Another problem of using "step" instead of timestep is my model is not working properly. Shipping and FNG variable in not working. Thank you.

Thanks for  pointing that out. The problem is the documentation need to be updated. The correct term in Forio Simulate is now STEP, not SIMSTEP.

For example, if:
V Data[0..5] = {1,2,3,4,5,6}
V Delivery Schedule  = Data[STEP]

Delivery Schedule will be equal to 1 at step 0, 2 at step 1, and so on.

I'm not sure why Shipping and FNG aren't working but the problem is not due to the SIMSTEP to STEP conversion.

Best, Michael

?path=rama_rdty&height=32 Rama Raditya 6 posts Thank you. I know why STEP cause problem. When I define an array I type V Data[1..5] = {1,2,3,4,5,6}  not V Data[0..5] = {1,2,3,4,5,6} . Since step function start from zero (0), the syntax will produce error since I have not define range 0.

PS: I there any quick way to import array from Excel ? I have hundred of data of demand in Excel. Adding coma (,) for each one of them will be time consuming. Thank you.

Professional Simulate accounts allow you to load data from an Excel spreadsheet template into a model.

One relatively easy way to add Excel data directly into your model equations is to save your spreadsheet as a .CSV file (comma delimited) and then open the file in a text editor such as Notepad and finally copy-and-paste the comma delimited data into your model.

Best, Michael
