The newest addin from Autodesk Labs  - Project Octopus that allows designers and engineers using Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis to seamlessly access data and results with Microsoft Office Excel. To know more about it please use this link.

For the first look this is the Excel_Formulas.xlsm from the 2014 SDK.

For some reason all the Robot files under the Example folder does not work, it is empty!!. when you click on the file you can see the structure in the preview but there is nothing in the file when it is opened even in the repair mode.

Hi Rafal,

 

as you can see in the following picture, when I run Excel_Formulas of project Octopus, I have the message "RSA is not open" but, as you can see, RSA 2014 is opened.

 

Whats wrong? Any registry option? I've installed on my workstation contemporary RSA 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 beta.

Thanks in advance for your reply and merry christmas.
