pLEASE ANYONE LET ME KNOW THE DIFFERENCE B/W CONFIGURATION AND DESIGN TABLE
This should help you: Design Table versus Configure Feature versus Specify Configuration
I belive that forum shows about their opinion about design table and configuration.
Agree but that gives an insight on creating configuration via configuration manager or design table.
This should help you in explaining more as what can be achieved with:
Creating a Configuration Manually
Creating Configurations with a Design Table
The discussion Deepak referred to was asking opinions about the ways to control configurations. A design table is one of those ways. So I'm afraid I don't understand your question. Maybe I don't know what B/W means?

That makes sense. I guess I'm not awake yet.

No thanks. I tried it one time and it took 2 beers to get the taste out of my mouth.
Hey, anything that gives us an excuse to drink beer can't be all bad!
Configuration : making variations that are determined by manual changes you have made in the drawing of certain dimensions or by changes in exernal references
Design table : making lots of variations which are determined by an excel table, with all the advantages of an excel table including calculations + surpressing/unsurpressing, changing material/colour etc.
I would expect that most use the latter when there are many variations needed and the former when making a design table would take longer that it would just making it in a configuration.
the other difference is that you you can set it to block changes to parts of the model that are controlled by the design table - this can limit unintentional changes to the model.
Denny, to add to what Peter said, Configurations are schemes for dimensions, suppression states and visual states and meta-data and are used to produce variations of a design without generating additional files
A design table is an excel workbook, stored in the Solidworks model that lays out in spreadsheet form multiple configurations.
You can also create configurations one at a time by adding names to the configuration property manager, activating each configuration and changing the states and parameters of the features or components.
You can also use the Modify Configurations dialog box in assemblies and parts to generate and specify multiple configurations quickly.
thank you all
any one help me to find a tutorial on both
Under the Design table(Excel sheet) we can able to create multiple configurations (instances of the parent file).
And we can able to create configuration without the design table also.
Once you create the design table you can able to track easily of all configuration features
