How to import load effects from Excel sheet

Let’s say we have excel spread sheet file with prepared values in the same order like in IDEA StatiCa Connection. We have to select only the values of the internal forces and copy them by Ctrl+C.


Now we can jump into IDEA StatiCa Connection, select an existing load effect and start XLS Import command from the ribbon.


Finally, we select the indicated cell below and paste the data by Ctrl+V.

Sometimes is handy to pay attention to Replace existing loads feature. By turning the checkbox on you will replace existing loads in the current LE with the imported ones.
