      and there i have part name "value 5", like PL-2 S235JRG2

      This part have all information Value 1-5 + others (value 6.7.8. lenght......)

      (We use native part that have all information, and we insert part to assebmy and save as command to project folder)


      I can make new part plate where is 2 holes, i save this in project folder and i want to give information.

      Value 1-5 is trop down list, others is inside part for bill of materials properties, but value 1-5 is need to save part information too.

      So i can take value 1 to value 5 step by step,

      or i ignore step 1-3 and only use step 4 an 5, when i use value 5, its write information 1-8 to data card and part.


      Question 2

      i need add 1 material, like this

      Material, plastic, Plate, CONSUMPTION PLASTIC, S=20 PE1000

      i give information value 6 75, value 7 1000, value 8 MATERIAL 24.

      how them come easy to datacard, i update exel, or only save this part to correct folder (or both)?
