Live link between two tables in NX drafting on two different sheets

Hy Everyone!

I have a problem to solve in NX, which I did not succeeded yet. If anyone of you could help me, I would be really thankful!

I would like to build up a standard drawing sheet "system" for our team.

In most cases we have to use more sheets. But on every sheets there are two tables which have to be the same.(One for the title, date, author name, article number, ect...; and one for keep up with changes.)
And they also have their exact position on each drawing sheets.
So basically just the views and the notes are different. 

And I would like to make a live link between these tables on different sheets, to work only once.
How can i do that? 
Three more important notes for it:
-In the "change table" we used to insert new lines, merge cells, when its needed.
-Ctrl+C;Ctrl+V is not an option for me, if we could do it in a more elegant way.
-We are using NX11 in Daimler environment.

Thanks forward for all your help!

The one for title/author/etc. can be done using the "title block" object.

The other probably has to be left as a standard tabular note.

Then create part / sheet templates out of them, and edit the appropriate .PAX files

If you want things the same on all sheets, I would use attributes, and have the text in the title block point at the attribute.  There are some "built in" attributes that can help:

If you are using Teamcenter, others can come from there.

You might consider a small block styler/API program to help with the rest (names/dates/etc.)
