Pause code until Excel file stored
12 views (last 30 days)
Hello, I use Excel documents for defining Inputs- and to Simulink models. Now I'm working on a script to update a model when I manually change the Excel file where I define the inputs. Right now I use winopen('myfile') for opening the file. So now I want to pause the code until the Excel file is closed or stored. Is there some easy way to do that?

This way might work. when you open and Excel file it generate a hidden file (i forget the file extend and I have not Excel right now). You can check whether that file exist in the directory or not. If that file is there, it means the excel is open. The following code checks whether a file exist in current directory or not.
if exist(Name, 'file') == 2 %if the Name file exist, then exist(Name, 'file') will return 2.
