I have made a top down assembly for my model and want to parametrise it using design tables. I can use the auto-create design table within Solidworks but I want to drive the parameters from an external excel file.
I have tried saving the auto-create design table to the folder that my assembly is in and updating it externally, but when I open the model it does not update (even when I subsequently open the design table internally and rebuild).
When I try to load a design table to the model using "from file", I see this error:
"File name entered was invalid, not found, locked or of an incompatible type."
I am running Solidworks 2019 and Office 365 ProPlus.
How do I get past this error to import a design table from file, or enable the model to be externally updated from the saved auto-created design table?
