Link cell of general table to cell of another table on drawing sheet

Hello everyone!

 

Does anybody know a trick to link a cell of a general table on a drawing to a cell of another table on this drawing? E.g. cell A1 of table1 = cell A1 of table2.

In an excel sheet this would be the function =table2!A1.

 

I'm trying to create some kind of input table on a drawing template, where the user has to enter some numbers in table 1. Table 2 then takes these numbers and calculates them (for example doubles them). In the end, only table 2 will be shown on the drawing sheet.

 

Yes, I could use custom properties for this but this would mean I had to create 150+ properties in the document (it's a large table). And yes, I could also accomplish this by writing a macro but that's like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut and isn't automatic updating.

 

Thanks, Jens

 

Additional question: The same as above but between two different tables on different drawing sheets (still the same drawing document)?
