Display tabular model and results data

Model & Results on the Analyze tab opens a Solver Model Data view which can be used to display each of the view types listed below.

Note: Some view types are only available when a specific Result Type is selected.

Once a view type is displayed, the data within it can be sorted by any column into ascending (▲), or descending (▼) order simply by clicking a column header.

When the view type is displayed as required, it can be exported to Excel to facilitate further result processing if needed by clicking Excel on the Analyze tab.
