Insert - Design Table Option in Drawing is grayed out

I think i'm missing something to activate the "Insert design table" option in a drawing. I've got a simple ring part with a number of configurations for different diameters, widths, and thickness. In the drawing I'd like to add a table with those configurations, so I've selected a view of one of the configurations in the drawing then click insert-table, but the design table option isn't available. Perhaps I'm misunderstanding what's considered a design table. My configurations were built by right clicking a dimension and choosing "configure dimension", saving the table from the "show table" dialog, adding the rest of my configured dimensions, saving again. Do I need to make this an excel table somehow to get this to work? I've not used external/excel configuration tables before.
