How do i import signal names from a excel database( a CAN database) for usage in Simulink simulations

3 views (last 30 days)
Hello, I have a database of hundreds of signals and I have the signal name field available in the excel format. I need to selectively use the signals ( signal names) in a SIMULINK simulation - how do I do it? I have tried excel import and data import , but they only import the signal values! not the signal names - in my case I will just need the signal names and then specify any test values across that signal names.
Hope I will get an answer soon.

did you look at 'xlsread'
[num,txt,raw,custom] = xlsread(filename,sheet,xlRange,'',functionHandle)
this should read the signal names

Yes. I have been trying different options - like create a mask subsystem out of an constant block - and create a drop down from the "mat" file of signal names.... but no success yet! Will be glad if you could help

it is still confusing what you are trying to achieve, are you trying to use a script to build your Simulink model. Can you show us a sample of what you did or what you tried so that we get a better picture.
