# Export data from excel to Dynamo to create a coordinate (X) that changes

Hello everyone!
I have exported an Excel file without problems, the data is obtained like “item in the list”. But I want that each of these items will be a single number, due to my goal is that coordenate X in pointbyCoordinates changes constantly, and in a flow replaces each value that appears in the list (export from Excel), so that I want a move of a polycurve.
At first, I solved the displacement with “Number Slider” which generates a number to change value in Coordinate X, I would like to get the same but with data previously given.

Thanks a lot!!!

Your file seems ok. The thing though is you will not get the flow to update until you save the excel file. The transfer of data is not seamless until you save the excel file after every modification.

Hope this helps…

Thanks for the help!
But my goal is for the data in column B (Desplazamientos) to be iterated, ie for the case of place 1 of the column at an instant of time is the value that corresponds to the coordinate x of one of the points that define the Curve, but for the next instant it is the value of position 2 of the column and so on, without considering the previous values, it is like a loop.
Thanks a lot!

Not sure I understand. So are you trying to write to and read from excel or just write to excel?

Really, I want to split up each value of [0] List (values import from Excel) (see photo)
Once, I have each independent value I want, in a iterative way, for example, at first value [0] Point (X=0.01 Y=-150 Z=-150) with value that appears in [1] List which value is Point (X=0 Y=0 Z=0), and they create a line or a curve with both coordinates; Secondly, [1] Point (X=0.5 Y=-150 Z=-150) with [1] List which value is Point (X=0 Y=0 Z=0) and it genarates a new line or curve, and it eliminates the last line or curve.
My goal is to get a polycurve or line that generates a displacement.

Thanks a lot!!!

Still not sure if this is what you mean.

Firstly, thanks a lot for the help!!

I want exactly that idea, due to I’m searching a displacement of a line, but I want an automatic movement without click on the “integer slider”…I don’t know if it could be possible, I have read abaout to create a loop with for in “code block”…I’m new using Dynamo.

Thanks again. Regards!!!

Ok thanks a lot for helping me! Regards
