Overview
The OpenSolver Add-on for Google Sheets lets you solve complex optimization problems from within your Google Sheet. Made by the developers of the popular OpenSolver addin for Microsoft Excel, this add-on brings the same Open Source optimization engine to the cloud!

OpenSolver for Google Sheets uses the excellent, Open Source, SCIP and Glop optimization engines to quickly solve large Linear and Integer problems.  SCIP is one of the fastest non-commercial solvers for mixed integer programs, and Glop is an Open Source Linear Programming solver by the Operations Research team at Google.  We also support using the Open Source COIN-OR Cbc solver via the NEOS optimization cloud, and the Open Source GLPK solver running locally in your browser via GLPK.js.

There are no artificial limits on the size of problem you can solve with OpenSolver.

OpenSolver is free, Open Source software developed and maintained by Andrew Mason and students at the Engineering Science department, University of Auckland, New Zealand.

Yeah. Straight up doesn't work. Using for a rental property model and wanted the monthly payment to be equal to $400 by changing the cell that contained the mortgage rate. Not even close to right answer Uninstalling

Does not work. Erases previously setup data as you set up your next parameter. Set objective, move to variables, it will erase objective. basically it refereshes with only most recent value set EVERY TIME. what a waste of time!

Broken -- will not load its own sidebar: has an infinite "Working" spinner icon. No way to see what went wrong for bug reporting.

Does not work. Reports that the objective is 0 no matter what, and returns an infeasible solution.

It just doesn't work sometimes. Will give wrong answers for 'target value' mode. It is faster, easier, and more accurate to just manually do a binary search to hone into the correct value for your variable cell. My target value was 2, and it stopped with a ridiculous value like 28. By updating the variable cell myself about 5 times, I was able to find the target value 2.
