Loading data from an Excel (.xlsx) spreadsheet

Simile on Windows can load file parameter values straight from an Excel spreadsheet, but to do so you must first install and register a compatible driver, otherwise you will see the warning dialogue headed "ODBC driver not found".

The driver is AccessDatabaseEngine_X64.exe (or ..._X86.exe if you are using 32-bit Simile) and is downloadable from Microsoft here.

There are commercial drivers available to do the same thing on Linux.
