Produce model documentation
Openbox can produce documentation for any model produced by it – even one you did not make yourself.
In the Openbox part of the Excel Ribbon, there are three buttons: Document in Excel, PPT and Word respectively.
The Document in Excel button will add a sheet to the model with a table listing all inputs and calculations, and their units and formula.
The Document in Word button does the same, except it creates a table in a new Word document.
The Document in PPT button creates a new set of PowerPoint slides, one per calculation, showing the formula, precedents and dependents. These are hyperlinked and can be saved as a clickable PDF that allows you to explore the calculations in the model without Excel.
You can change the format of the PowerPoint slides created by editing the “documentation template.pptx” file in your OBXComponents folder.
