Will a ReadfromFile expression attempt to read the data each time results are recalculated? Is there a way to force WEAP to do so?

When WEAP reads data from a CSV file, it records the timestamp of the file and will not read the data from the file again unless the timestamp changes. Because it is relatively slow to check a file's timestamp, WEAP does not check the file's timestamp more frequently than once per minute. In general, it is not a good idea to make changes to a CSV file while WEAP is calculating.
