Generating a Table of contents in a multi-sheet drawing

Customer needs following:

1. Has a drafting file which contains over 20 sheets and in which each sheet has been renamed

    to specific names such as "MAIN", "AUX.PIPING 01", etc

2. Exports the drawing to PDF and sends it off.

3. Since the PDF contains only the NUMBER of the sheets, the recipient needs a  Table of

     contents on the first sheet in order to save time while searching.

4. Did somebody already write a macro in SOLID EDGE which generates such a table (which

    then of course would appear in the PDF as well) ?

Many thanks in advance,

   Oswald

You mean a table like this.

Wolfgang might be having a macro already. Else I will attach one in my reply tomorrow.

Nice, I could really use tables of contents. Most of my drawing are 10 to 30 pages long.

The Sheet Names Table macro is available via a download link on this page.

Scroll down till you see the image dn0.png

 

And hopefully this was the functionality expected.

If not, kindly ask, I'd be glad to make any changes/updates as requried, subject to - they don't take up too much of time.

@Tushar,

 

You sir, much like your macro, are a "legend"!...take it from someone who doesn't normally leverage macro's, etc,...I know I'm going to use this!  Robot Happy

 

Waiting paitently for a large hole pattern in sheet metal to calculate, and then I'm running this macro to try it out.

Hello,



This is what our user needed. There is just one question : the manager

would like - optionally - to cancel row 2 ("Macro by:
www.CADVertex.com").

Is this possible ?

Hi Oswald,

 

You can of course, double click on the table to manually edit that text to your liking, or delete the cell contents.
