I am trying to create some configured weldment profiles. I have different design tables for each profile, in separate excel files.
Is it possible to have all the design tables in one excel file? One table in each sheet?
Last time what I'm use it this kind of profiles, Igor Fomenko has a correct way to use it.
Maybe this fella could help you.

I will try to practice too with those one's.... thanks buddy.
Thanks. But my question was whether it was possible to have all the design tables in one single excel file? One table in each sheet? It is not explained anywhere.
I gave you links with example files. One design table per one FILE one the first sheet.
1. I created a Design Table from file. My external file has around 150 configurations, but it only around 100 plus are made in SolidWorks. Can anyone help on this?
2. I am just curious if I have this big external file with around 150 rows (configurations), will it slow down the model or BOM generation or rebuilding when I working on fabrication drawings? Is it better to have the table inbuilt in SolidWorks or should I keep the configuration file as external?
1. What do you want to do, combine them? Or left only one from file Or what? You can do a lot of scenarios.
2. Design table in SLDLFP file can`t slow down your performance, but design table in part or assembly file can, I delete it just after creating of all configs.
I am getting this error again and again..
1st: Check this option
2nd: If it doesn`t help click on "Don`t show again" checkbox in the lower left corner of your message.
Igor, thanks. So it means we can't have multiple design sheets in a Single Excel file?
Yes, and I don`t understand why you want this - one profile with a lot of configs - one file. Why do you want to mix an angle with a bar for example?
I have 4 profiles. Beams, Channels, Angles, CHS. These are separate .sldlfp files. Now for these files, I have separate design tables (excel files). I want to have a single excel file, with all the design tables in it (Beams, Channels, Angles, CHS). But these should be on separate sheets of the excel files, so that I do not mix them up. Is this possible?
One profile - one excel file with design table on the first sheet. You cant select sheet in sldlfp file, there is no such option in SW
Igor, thanks. I did not know that we can delete the design table and still maintain the configurations in the .sldlfp file. Thanks.
