I'm trying to work with a table for the first time. I began with the assumption that I could create a place to name dimensions and define the dimensional variables (i.e., inches, etc) for the lenght, width and height of a box. Than use that table to change those dimensions and the box size would change in accordance. However, I can't seem to make that work. So what am I doing wrong. Thanks, Ron Ronald W Latour
Ron, The User Table is simply a table of text. You can however link variables in the variable to cells of an external spreadsheet. Insert the spreadsheet onto the drawing. When you edit the spreadsheet, the image of the spreadsheet and the linked variables (dimensions) will update. See the attached image. Read help about variables and linking to a spreadsheet. You will have to go to Quick Assess Toolbar and Customize to add the Insert Object command to add a linked image to the spreadsheet on the drawing. If you simply want to drive the dimensions from the spreadsheet and do not want to insert an image of the spreadsheet, this will not be necessary. Regards, Rick B.
