Hi,This is my first post and I'm new to solidworks,so thanks for your help in advance.

I am trying to create a label made from 2 part plastic.I have created the lower portion which is white and then the top portion which is blue.In reality when I engrave text through the top surface I will end up with a blue label with white writing.I have created the text and extruded through the blue to show this but when I change the text in the next configuration they all change to the updated text.My question is this,I have 14 labels to do and originally thought that I could create a design table containing the text but I have found that this is not so (with my limited knowledge),I think my only option is to create a default configuration and then create the different text and extrusions in the feature manager using a design table to suppress/unsupress the desired values.Am I approaching this in the correct way ?
