LiveLink™ for Excel® Updates

For users of LiveLink™ for Excel®, with the COMSOL Multiphysics® software version 5.6, the toolbar now supports working with multiple parameter nodes and there is an upgraded Excel® file reading library, which is used on Linux® and macOS or if Excel® is not installed on Windows®. Read about these LiveLink™ for Excel® updates below.

Multiple Parameter Nodes

In COMSOL Multiphysics®, you can add multiple Parameter nodes to group your parameters as needed, which is especially helpful when you have a lot of parameters. When a model contains multiple parameter nodes, they will show up as individual items on the Excel® toolbar, making it easier to import only the parameters you want to work with.
