How to import load effects from Excel sheet

This article is also available in:

It is possible to import the load effects from an Excel sheet provided the table is correctly organized. The order of members as well as of the internal forces and their units must comply with the IDEA StatiCa Connection project.

Copy (Ctrl+C) the values from the Excel table. If you have prepared more sets of internal forces in the tab (e.g. 10 combinations), you can pile them up in the tab and copy the whole data selection at once. IDEA StatiCa will recognize the whole selection of sets and will create a separate load effect for each set.

In IDEA StatiCa Connection, select an existing load effect and start XLS Import command from the ribbon.

Finally, select the indicated cell below and Paste (Ctrl+V) the values.

If you want to replace the existing load effect by the values from the Excel sheet, you can use the Replace existing loads checkbox. Otherwise, a new load effect will be created.
