Resurrecting another old post here. Same issue on my end. Has anyone seen a resolution to this? I need my description field to change when I change members in FG. Seems like a logical request to me so I imagine I am missing something?
Question: Where does the description property get it's value? Have you added the description field to your CC family table, or is it pulling it from somewhere else? I will have to test this, but I believe that if you have a description field in your family table, it will update properly.
Sorry about that. I should have been more descriptive... I know better, hence my history of ridiculously long posts. I have a description column that I added and mapped to the proper iProp. I added the column by editing the family table, then I opened the table through Excel and used a formula to get the description contents. Perhaps I should try making it a static value in Excel? Any other thoughts/ideas? Thanks for the help!
I've never tried making a formula in Excel transfer to the family table, however, i have done formulas IN the family table, and hed them work just fine after changing parts. That said, my formula column is not the Description column... it is part number.... whole different story...
My descriptions come directly from the filename column, which I have filled with a static value that I hand entered... it took forever but I got exactly what I wanted. So far I'm not aware of any problems with them not updating when I change member sizes.
