    Using Excel to control dimensions

    Joseph Lord

      Hi,

       

      I want to control the length of a single line in a sketch (although I will have around 60 lines each in their own sketch), but I want the value for the dimensions to be drawn from an excel datasheet.

       

      The figures for how long each line needs to be will be given to me, but I don't want to open each sketch and manually input the value, especially as these values will change at times.

       

      Once I have this set up it should be feasable to paste new values into the excell fields and each lines length will change automatically.

       

      Hopefully it will be one of those things that takes a while to set up but then makes things realy easy in future.

       

      Anyone know how to do this??
