Hello) Maybe you know how I can automatically insert a value into a script parameter from an Excel or txt file. For example, I have an area parameter in the script, and I need this value to be taken automatically from an Excel or txt file.

Is there any command in the script to do this?

I will be grateful for the answer).

You can use the GDL Text Add-on to read in arbitrary data.

But bear in mind that the type of the variable will be auto casted. So if it looks like a number it will be treated as one. This might lead to problems with e.g. room lists.

Thank you!

This is a GDL TEXT I/O extension need to download?

Have you read the link?

In short: No. It's named "Add-on" since you could actually write you own extensions in C++ which would be callable from GDL. But this is one of the default OOTB ones (:
