Xref drawing sheets

Discussion created by Parag Mehta on Mar 11, 2009
Hello,

I have a drawing sheet in a drawing file 'A'. I would like to insert this drawing sheet into a drawing file 'B' whereby the functionality of Xref is required. Any changes made to the drawing sheet in file 'A' should be automatically reflected in file 'B'.

This can be easily done using Xref command in AutoCAD wherein the inserted object maintain a link with the original or source. Is there a way around in Solidworks to get this done? The inserted material is only required to be visually present and is not intended for any editing, but at the same time has to be always up-to-date without any manual intervention.

Any help would be appreciated.
