Import Excel model into Epicenter

#1

I wonder if there is any documentation or guidance available for the import of an Excel model into Epicenter? I seem to be able to do it in terms of connecting then I get error messages, even though I have named the ranges in Excel and I can see the names in Epicenter.

Hi Tim,

Thanks for the note. We are working on a writeup of the Excel feature, but it’s not available yet. You can find some notes at https://forio.com/epicenter/docs/public/model_code/excel/

What’s the URL of your simulation? I’d be happy to review it and offer suggestions.

regards, WILL

Hi, I am new to Forio and am trying to test out a simple excel model. So far, I have been able to upload the excel file and see the named ranges in the Interface Builder. But I cannot figure out how to build the graph!

Can you provide a single excel file example that goes through the entire process and shows how to plot the graphs and test the simulation? There is hardly anything useful in terms of basic tutorials or examples.

If I can’t figure this out, I will have to give up on Forio - good concept but poor documentation.

Yes, here is a video tutorial explaining the entire process and how to create graphs:

Thanks, Michael, this is very helpful.

Do you also have a similar tutorial for connecting Python scripts to Forio? After testing with Excel, my next goal is to connect with actual Python scripts.

Yes, here is another video that explains how Python is integrated. You can use this same technique with the User Interface builder:

Hi, Michael:

Per my request 6 days ago, please send (or post here), the sample python files that are mentioned in the Python Youtube Video.
