SOLIDWORKS Inspection does not currently support A-Z numbering.
However, I believe you might be able to "convert" balloons from 1-100 to A-ZZ using macros. It might be easy but technically all the info is on the sheet.
One thing I would be careful however is to ensure you have a flat numbering to start with 1,2,3...99 and not 1.1,1.2,2,3,4.1,4.2,...
Also, you will need a second macro for the Excel template.
Thank you for your reply.
I think that is the way we plan on doing it.
I figured that it should be possible to step through a drawing finding all the balloons en then changing them to a letter.
We've discussed a couple of times internally if we can change our inspection path to number balloons, but our problem is that the entire manufacturing and programming history of the company have been using letters in all the documentation and CAM programs for years now. And switching to numbers makes it really hard to check what changed in the past... So we need to hold on the the Letters.
If anyone has a simple example script that steps throught all the balloons on the drawing and changes the number to a letter (or ask for user input on what you want to put in the balloon) , that would be really helpfull.
My knowledge of macro's is almost Zero.
