As we know, Solid Edge can link variable table related information from excel. However, i have a request lately about how to link text information (e.g. description text) from Excel file to Solid Edge 2D drafting.

Any suggestion folks?

I attempted that for a while in ST6 and gave up. I was able to get reliable links from SE to Excel, but getting Excel to live up date ST6 never worked right.

 

I have yet to try again in ST7,8,9

 

My goal was to place variables from SE into a table. I was going to use this as a work around for no method of placing variable into tables cell by cell.

 

To me, this is the largest hole in SE's possible workflows that makes me call SE not a mature software.
