The Dynamic Data Exchange is an automated version of the Copy and Paste method. This method is beneficial when the metrics used to analyze a scenario are well established and will be used for a group of scenario runs.
The disadvantage to this method is the potential to overload the model with DDE links causing the model to run more slowly or become dysfunctional.
It is important to name the EXCEL file with a relevant name before creating links. Changing the names of the EXCEL and STELLA files, moving the files out of the WIRM directory, or renaming the WIRM directory will break the DDE links.
