Join Curt Frye for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding data and changing values to the worksheet, part of Solving Optimization and Scheduling Problems in Excel.
- Once we have the outline for our solver model in place,…we can type in the numbers we will use later…when we create our constraints.…In this case we need to enter the number…of times each pair of teams will play,…that's twice if they're in the same division,…once if they're in different divisions.…Track the total number of games per week,…and ensure each team plays no more than once per week.…I'll do that work based…on the SportsScheduling_Data workbook.…You can find that in the Chapter Six folder…of the exercise files archive.…
So I have the basic outline that I need,…I have the team matchups,…I have the number of weeks,…I have my various row headers,…a label for my Objective cell,…and at the bottom, I have a small data table…that will track the number of times…that each team plays in a given week.…So I'll scroll back up,…and I will enter in the data that will be used…to create the solution.…First, I'll select cells B3 through P9,…type a 0,…and then press Ctrl Enter.…
Doing so enters the number zero…into the entire range.…
