Exporting dims from Solidworks to excel

Hi,
I need to export dimensions from Solidworks drawing to excel (or other
editor) but I can't find anywhere that option, do you know how to do
it????
Thanks for help in advance.

my thought here is in the model you can create a design table and let it auto-populate it with data from the model (2007 function). this data will be in Excel table which you can sort through and copy and paste out of it. iQ

There is another way:
-Create a custom property for the dimension(s) you want to export -in the value/text expression field place the property of the dimension you want, it will look something like this: "RD1@ snipped-for-privacy@M01-AE-020.Part" (don't forget the quotations) where the RD1@Annotations is the name of the dimension you want, obtained from the more properties dialog of the dimension property. And the @M01-AE-020.Part is the file name. -once you have them all done create a custom table on a drawing that calls in all the values and do a save as CSV and import into excel.
For instance you could use the properties length, width, thickness to generate a sum of all the lengths of angle in a project. You may also want to add the quantity property in case there is more than one of an item then manipulate you spreed sheet to multiply the length by the quantity to give a sub total.
Hope this gives you an idea.
