Although MUSIC projects are typically setup using the MUSIC graphical user interface, two options are available for importing MUSIC projects from external files:

MUSIC Setup File (*.msf)

 

MUSIC Setup Files (*.msf) are text-based files that can be developed in any external text editor or spreadsheet software. Unlike the *.sqn file, *msf can be developed independently of MUSIC as the described here. This makes the *.msf particularly useful for automatically creating MUSIC projects using third party software.

Once a *.msf has been developed, ensuring that it adheres to file format requirements, the file can be imported into MUSIC by selecting Create Model » Import/Export and selecting Import - msf from the drop down menu.

In addition to allowing the import of *.msf files, MUSIC can export any existing model in *.msf format. This allows model inputs to be reviewed in a text-based format and can also provides a text-based template for the development of similar, future MUSIC models (which can subsequently be imported using the procedure described above). To export an existing project to *.msf format, select Create Model » Import/Export and selecting Export - msf from the drop down menu.

Excel Setup Script (*.csv)

Excel Setup Scripts (*.csv) are text-based files that employ the same file format as *.msf files. The CSV extension is provided to allow more efficient integration with Excel.

The file can be imported into MUSIC by selecting Create Model » Import/Export and selecting Import - Excel from the drop down menu.

In addition to allowing the import of *.csv files, MUSIC can export any existing model in *.csv format. This allows model inputs to be reviewed in Excel and can also provides an Excel-based template for the development of similar, future MUSIC models (which can subsequently be imported using the procedure described above). To export an existing project to *.csv format, select Create Model » Import/Export and selecting Export - Excel from the drop down menu.
