I am having problems trying to update a design table. The spreadsheet is linked to a part which is part of an assembly. However when I go into the assembly and try to edit the design table I get that error. Has anyone come across this?
Could you attach the part file, it's hard to tell whats going on from the screen shot.
I have attached the file, try to modify the table in the assembly.
Unless I am missing something it seems like you are trying to control part dimensions from an assembly level design table, SolidWorks won't allow you to do that which is why that error comes up.
Then that might be the answer, because that is what I'm trying to do. Is there an alternative or workaround?
Not that I am aware of, how I would do this is to build your configurations in the part file and then you could control what part file is used in the assembly through a design table. I am a little confused about the "sketch" parts purpose since it has not features in it.
Got the very same problem and found a reason for this.
Notised that I had another design table file opened at the same time in the background and after closing that one everything runned fine again.
