LiveLink™ for Excel® UpdatesFor users of LiveLink™ for Excel®, COMSOL Multiphysics® version 6.2 provides an improved COMSOL ribbon tab, support for evaluation groups, and access to Model Manager database files from Excel®. Read more about these updates below.
Improved COMSOL Ribbon Tab
The COMSOL ribbon tab within the Excel® user interface has been revamped with improved grouping and naming of buttons to optimize the workflow. The ribbon now includes an Open Linked button that can be used to quickly open the COMSOL model linked to the workbook you are working with, for example, to compute and update results in the workbook. A COMSOL Desktop button is also available in the ribbon tab and can be used to open the linked model in the COMSOL Desktop® to visualize updates made from Excel worksheets.
Using the new Evaluation Groups button in the ribbon tab, it is now possible to evaluate the expressions defined in evaluation groups and insert the results into Excel worksheets. A corresponding Visual Basic® for Applications (VBA) method is also available.
Model Manager Support
It is now possible to browse models saved in a Model Manager database when opening models with the LiveLink™ add-in in the Excel® user interface.
