I'm wanting to use an existing spread sheet to drive a design table.
basically cell A1 of spread sheet = d1@sketch 1 ...and so on

my vision is to have a link from excel that opens Solidworks and creates new parts from the spreadsheet data.
I got this Idea from how SKF create solidworks assemblies from a downloaded macro
any idea's?
