Excel cells can only be linked with variables in the Variable Table, however a variable can be exposed as a Custom Property and then consumed via Property Text.

Hi @KennyG

 

AFAIK a link from Excel to Solid Edge variable table only is possible using numeric values but not for text properties.

 

So IMHO this might not be the solution for @aslam

 

But the better question will be why will Excel to Solid Edge the better solution than keeping it internally?

 

I have heard that much often "we need an Excel table"  to connect it to Solid Edge where on the other hand the internal function are at least as good as the external ones but they will be inside, associative and faster than any external.

 

And if it is conerning textual properties, Excel anyway will be unable to use.
