If the Spreadsheet Link software has been initialized and the MATLAB software is running, subsequent invocations do nothing.

  • To run matlabinit from the Microsoft® Excel® toolbar, click Tools > Macro. In the Macro Name/Reference box, enter matlabinit and click Run. Alternatively, you can include this function in a macro subroutine. You cannot run matlabinit as a worksheet cell formula or in a macro function.
