# The INCLUDE statement

## Semantics

Specifies files that need to be included before compiling.

Possible files to include are:

• xlsx-files with the standard population

A model is true within a specific context. All code in the included adl-files will become part of the context of the main adl-file. The main adl-file is the file that is called with the command Ampersand.

## Syntax

INCLUDE filename+


The filename is given in double quotes, including a path that is relative to the position of the main adl-file.

Make sure to include the adl-files before including xlsx-files.

Files can be nested. Nested adl-files can have their own xlsx-files included.

For formatting your excel-file see the text on the Excel Importer.
