Re: Mechanical desktoop vs Inventor challenge

karthur,

Thanks for your help. This will work for me. Interesting thing, there is no separate excel file created in this whole process. But yet, when I go to edit table via excel, all of the settings from previous excel session are preserved including formulas, cell formats and comments in cells, pretty nice.

You can link to an external Excel file or embed the Excel file in the Inventor file.

There are advantages and disadvantages to both techniques.

So I already learned how to use the imbeded version, happens by default. I didn't see any options in the process to actually link one. How is that done ?

Thanks guys. I have a ton of learning ahead of me. Best way to learn is to create my own project now, so that's what I'll do. I will most likely have another list of questions before I'm done with it ...
