i have this problem that is driving me crazy. Solidworks is 2016 sp.2.0
I have 2 parts files, each one have ~50-100 configurations created with a design table in excel. They are simple part, a weldment profile that change in lenght. The design table of the parts drive the lenghts.
Then i made an assembly with these 2 parts and created a design table with some configuration. I inserted the the column $configuration@<name of the part file><istance number>
But from excel i cannot select others configurations of part file. The drop down menu report me only the the string (the name) of the column.
