I try to copy a link from my variable table of an assambly but this is grey.
Could it be this is disabled due to an "Alternate assembly"?
There is no way to use a variable within a single table of a cell.
The only way to display variable is either line by line (like a parts list, same varaible per part), or to use annotation as the display of variables.
Long ago (ST6) I tried to work around using excel, but could not find away to get excel to update from draft & model files. Excel will auto update to draft, but not from.
HUGE shortcomming of solid edge. I had been resorting to lines of annotation and editing spaces to line things up. I feel like I'm back in AutoCAD 10 when I do this.
@Joris I don't know if it works with alternate assembly or not but do you have this set?
I don't try to link to an external spreadsheet, just to an other assembly.
So "copy link" from asm1 to "paste link" in asm2.
I use this very much, it was the first time I couldn't.
That's why I think it has something to do with alternate assembly's.
Thanks for your answer.
It's about time alternate assemblies gets developed completely...
I know it is possible to link to and from excel. But I have never been able to do that in a way it updates round trip from a file to excel to draft.
Gettin excel to control a model works wells.
Getting SE to update excel is where I have not been able to get the updates to happen easy.
