I have just found out that our Corporate HQ is going from MS Office to Lotus. Can SW BOM and Design Tables be generated from Lotus? Is this an ongoing question?
Only Microsoft Excel can be used to create SolidWorks Excel Based BOM and Design Tables. They will need Excel to be able to use this SolidWorks functionality. They could always use the SolidWorks Based BOM that doesn't use Excel.
Design Tables maybe with some software. Automatically updating BOM-tables to drawings probably not.
That's what I thought. Excel BOMs and Tables are best when creating and updating.
No probs, it is always fun to help I also have one short video what I did with excel:
