Hi,

 

I have a rather long and complex Bill of Material that is 100 times faster for me to update in Excel.  I have created the BOM in Solidworks from a configuration, saved it as an Excel Spreedsheat and I'm currently modifying the Material/Quantity/Description in Excel.

 

When I inmoprt this BOM back into my drawing will the changes I made in Excel automatically update the File Properties for each part as if I was editing them inside Solidworks?

 

If not is there a way to do this? Or is my time better spent just updating the BOM in soldiworks even though it takes a considerable amount of time.
