I need some help working with design tables. I'm trying to create one part file that has numerous configurations of a tube. The tube varies in ID, OD, and Length. This is easy to set up in a design table. My problem is that the various configurations have different tolerances. My AutoCAD drawing of this part shows the various sizes in a table with six columns:
ID | ID Tolerance | OD | OD Tolerance | Length | Length Tolerance
If I enter dummy columns in my design table so that I can type in the tolerances, SWX no longer recognizes OD or Length as design table linked variables.... probably because there is an "empty" column separating them. How do I enter dummy columns and still have SWX pick up the columns that are actually linked to model dimensions?
I'm doing this so that I can just dump my design table into my drawing and have my tabulated dimensions all ready to go. I don't want to have to create this spreadsheet twice, only to have them not be linked.
I'm running SWX 2003 SP 4.
