    using an assembly variable in a part

    Jim Steinmeyer

      This should be easy but is eluding me.

           I have a new assembly basically from the ground up so I decided to attempt to learn the top down assembly method with skeleton parts. I have created numerious planes and a couple of starting sketches and global variables. Now I would like to start creating individual parts linking them to the global variables. I did the "insert new part" within the assembly and with the part active in the assembly I am attempting to link part dimensions to the assembly global variables. When I place the dimension and add = to link the dimension to the variables the only global variables that come up are the part variables. Apparently I am not searching for the correct terms as I can't find it in the forum, so how do I get the assembly variables available for use in the parts?
