I'm trying to set up an revision table but when I add a revision Row, the approved column stays empty. How can I use this so that it fills in the user initials to this column?
You will need to link the approved column to a custom property from either the part or assembly function.
Then save the revision table as a template.

Thanks for your reply, that I can do but I want the custom property of the ApprovedBy automatic filled in wiht the initials of the user that's using the program.
So when I'm opening an drawing, can you automatic change a custom property to 'BPI' ? And if someone else on another computer opens the same drawing the the custom property will be his/her initials.
Sorry I wouldn't know how you would do this.
The only way I could think off is if this field was somehow populated with your computer log in details, which I assume would be unique to each person.
