The READ and WRITE Statements

Dynamic data transfer

In order to help you separate the model description and its input and output data, AIMMS offers the READ and WRITE statements for dynamic data transfer between your modeling application and external data sources such as

  • text data files, and

  • database tables in external ODBC-compliant databases.

This chapter

This chapter first introduces the READ and WRITE statements in the form of an extended example. Subsequently, their semantics are presented in full detail including issues such as filtering, domain checking, and slicing.
