Question: According to the user guide, it is possible to paste in date to the data grid views, to quickly update information within a TRANSYT model. I am trying to simply update flow information, and yet the programme will not allow me to paste the new flows from the spreadsheet into the data grid table. Any guidance on this issue would be much appreciated.
Answer: The grid and the spreadsheet must have the same number of rows and columns. To ensure this it is best to do the following:
1. export the relevant grid first to your spreadsheet
2. highlight it (in order so you know what to paste back in)
3. fill it in (with your data)
4. Then copy and paste the highlighted area back into TRANSYT
This method should ensure that the number of rows and columns are right and so TRANSYT will then not reject the pasting operation, or fail to paste in the data in the correct way.
