Multiple parts, design tables driven by one table

Hey all,

First off, it's SW2008 SP1.1

I've been working on a project, trying to automate the design of our assemblies. My goal has been to have one "master" Excel sheet that defines the dimensions for the various parts in the assembly.

I have found one way to do this; I have the DT's saved out and linked, all referring to the master sheet for their parameters. I just have to open all the sheets so they'll update.

The problem I'm having now is that I was to save each design I do as a separate model.

Is there any way to do this, save for deleting the design table from each part manually (thus breaking the link to the master sheet)?

Many thanks for any advice.
