    Table Templates

    Jason Corl
      I've been creating table templates for use with drawings. However every time I go to insert a table and I want one that I created, it takes me to the BOM template folder. Since it is just a General Table is there a separate folder general table templates should go in? Is there a way to change the default from the BOM folder for general tables.

      Thanks,

            Thanks,

            Once you specify a particular table for a particular type, that should come up as the default for that type (at least this is how it works for me)

              Joel,

              Unless something has changed in SW09, there is not a specific file location for "General Tables".

              What I have done is to create a sub-folder (General) under my BOM folder, that way I can click browse, then the General folder and finally the required table. It's only one extra click so it's not so bad.

                Hey Eddie,

                Not sure who Joel is but its all good.

                I'm not sure about 09 either (just got dvd yesterday so I will check soon) but i know 08 doesn't have a particular file location for general tables listed in "file locations". I like your idea though and might try that method to help keep things organized.

                thanks for the input guys.

                Edit: Matt, I understand what you are saying I was just wondering if there was a way to specify the default folder if it was different from the BOM tables folder. I corrected the issues now by changing the BOM folder name to BOM and General Tables so it makes more sense for users now.
