Design tables not reliable ?

Discussion created by Guest on Jul 25, 2006
Hi John and Eddy,
Thanks for your replies.
I have had very bad experiences with design tables on assemblies with many (60 or so) configurations, and lots of suppressed/unsuppressed elements, changing dimensions, etc..
When the table got corrupt, I almost lost all my model configurations at a late stage of the project, and I will never forget all the night hours spent rebuilding everything properly.
I think that the real problem is that SW is tied with Micro$oft by contract, and that they just couldn't get rid of Excel, even if they wanted to.
