I am working on a driveworks project, but am having some trouble finding an easy way to do the following;


I am trying to make a BOM-table in my solidworks-drawing. The description will change according to the which features selected. The amount of items on the BOM list will ALSO change. I hoped there would be a way to drive each cell in the table, and also drive the number rows/columns, but i cant find any.


The only way i can think of off the top of my head, is to make and drive a lot of textboxes. And then make a table with 3 rows in layer 1, one with 4 rows in layer 2 ...... and then just hide/delete the layers which is not in use. But this seems like a lot of hassle. Especially since the number of items range from 2 to 24 . :/.


Any good ideas would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks for your help
