    Load Multiple design tables at once?

    Tom Sowers

      Does anyone know if this is possible?  When I manually try this one instance of solidworks will say that the server is unavailable.  When using the API files load a design table but it isn't the file specified in the InsetFamilyTableOpen command.  Is there some way to do this or a work around to get similar functionality?

          Umm, what is this InsetFamilyTableOpen command?  Not in API help, zero results on Google...

              Sorry... Found the typo.  InsertFamilyTableOpen.  What are you trying to do?  Add design tables to multiple parts that don't already contain design tables across multiple instances of SW at once?  What is your ultimate goal?  You're probably running into conflicts with Excel trying to also do multiple instances.  You may need to take a step back and evaluate your approach.

                  Sorry about the typo didn't catch that.  Also ClosedXml takes care of the excel files edits just fine.  Ultimate goal is to edit multiple assemblies at once by inserting design tables to configure an assembly into the desired configuration on demand instead of making the individual edits to components.  Dealing with a highly customized product line that has about 10^39th possible variations, it's more efficient to generate the models on demand than have a library of that size.  System works perfect with a single instance of Solidworks, working to expand it's capacity without having to add more computers.
