Loads existing Solver model parameters that have been saved to the worksheet.

Before you use this function, you must establish a reference to the Solver add-in. In the Visual Basic Editor, with a module active, click References on the Tools menu, and then select the Solver.xlam check box under Available References. If Solver.xlam does not appear under Available References, click Browse and open Solver.xlam in the \office14\library\Solver subfolder.


SolverLoad(LoadArea, Merge)

LoadArea   Required Variant. A reference on the active worksheet to a range of cells from which you want to load a complete problem specification. The first cell in the LoadArea contains a formula for the Set Objective Cell box in the Solver Parameters dialog box; the second cell contains a formula for the By Changing Variable Cells box; subsequent cells contain constraints in the form of logical formulas. The last cell optionally contains an array of Solver option values. For more information, see SolverOptions. The range represented by the argument LoadArea can be on any worksheet, but you must specify the worksheet if it is not the active sheet. For example, SolverLoad ("Sheet2!A1:A3") loads a model from Sheet2 even if it is not the active sheet.

Merge   Optional Variant. A logical value corresponding to either the Merge button or the Replace button in the dialog that appears after you select the LoadArea reference and click OK.  If True, the variable cell selections and constraints from the LoadArea are merged with the currently defined variables and constraints.  If False or omitted, the current model specifications and options are erased (equivalent to a call to the SolverReset function) before the new specifications are loaded.

This example loads the previously calculated Solver model stored on Sheet1, changes one of the constraints, and then solves the model again.
