Direct Results Access from Microsoft Excel & Mathcad
As part of the ANSYS ASAS installation, functional interfaces enable all ANSYS ASAS results to be accessed and retrieved using Microsoft® Excel® and Mathcad®.
This facility provides a number of major benefits. It allows the user to perform further post-processing using Excel (including Visual Basic®) and Mathcad. It also allows a user to design his or her own report templates. Once designed, templates can be re-used, thus saving considerable effort.
A Microsoft Windows® dynamic-link library provides a toolkit of functions that may be called by user-created executable programs that permit access to the ANSYS ASAS results.
