External Multi part design tables

Hi all:

 

I'm trying to model a few parts that have certain dimensions that I'm trying to control via an external file, say an excel sheet or a delimited txt file.

Basically, what I want is that I can update the excel or txt using matlab or something else, and then whenever the parts are opened, they rebuild reflecting the newest relevant values in the external file. I have tried equation tables, but those seem to need to be loaded into a file and then the values when loaded and saved into the part, its not a self-updating situation.

 

Any ideas?

Thank you!
