You can set Simul8 to read from a CSV file that uses tab delimited to define a new column. Write your csv file, replacing “,” with Tab.

Then create a number global data item within the information store in Simul8 called “TEXT_FILE_TYPE” in exactly this format. In the global data item dialog box when creating this variable, select the 'on reset' value to 1.

This is a variable that acts as a switch. '0' to read commas, '1' to read Tabs.

By setting to 1 this now tells Simul8 to read tabs in the CSV file as a new column in the spreadsheet. You will also have to create a variable for your internal spreadsheet and write some Visual Logic code to then write the data into this spreadsheet.
