4.9. Multiple Simulations All Show the Same Data

Applies to: @RISK for Excel 5.0.0 (initial release only)

I'm running multiple simulations, but the Simulation Data report in Excel shows the same data for all of them.

Multiple simulations should have different input data if you tell Excel to use a different random number seed for each simulation, and they should have different output data if the above is true or if you have one or more RiskSimtable( ) functions and later calculations depend on them.

There was a bug in @RISK 5.0.0 that simply duplicates Simulation 1 data for the other simulations in the Simulation data report in Excel. All other graphs and reports are correct. The bug was fixed in @RISK 5.0.1 and never occurred in the @RISK component of The DecisionTools Suite.

If you have @RISK 5.0 initial release (not part of The DecisionTools Suite), please visit to update your software. If you are unable to update your software, here are three alternatives to choose from:
