If x is a variable, something like the following:

set N; # index set
var x{N,N};
s.t. Symmetry {i in N, j in N : i <> j}: x[i,j] = x[j,i];

You could declare


   param x {N,N} default 0;


and read whatever values are given in the Excel file.  Then after your "read table", to fill in the missing values you could use an assignment statement like this:


   let {i in N, j in N: x[i,j] = 0} x[i,j] := x[j,i];


Of course any other default value will work as well.

Hi Paul,


Thanks for your response. What if x [i, j] is a parameter? 


for example, x [i, j] indicates the distance from i to j. In the excel file, there are only values for x [i, j]. How can I tell AMPL to read the value of x [j, i]  assuming that x [i, j] = x [j, i]?
