Read distribution parameters from Excel file

Created at
in Community support

Hello, I have an Excel input file where I give the parameters for distributions such as Weibull. And in the activity that uses this probability, I have defined the parameters by variables: LOS_alpha, LOS_beta, LOS_min where these three values are read from the excel file. The values are properly read and assigned but when I try to run the simulation I get an "Advice" message saying that "a distribution parameter that is calculated is incompatible with the distribution type selected". Any suggestions as to what I can do will be greatly appreciated

    Hi Alicia,
    That's kind of strange. Could you perhaps use the Set Distribution Parameters command in Visual Logic for setting up your parameters? It saves up some time from having to connect to Excel.

    Freddy :)
