    Linking General Table (in a Drawing) to a Part Design Table

    Alex Deuitch

      I have recently created a design table for a simple washer with numerous different configurations.  The variable that changes for the different configurations is the “width” or thickness of the washer.  I am wondering, is there a way to drive the configuration name itself to be “-(thickness value)”?  The configuration name is dependent on the thickness so if the thickness changes, I want the configuration name to change. 

       

      I am wanting to be able to create a general table in a drawing and link all of the drawing table cells to the values of thickness and configuration name from the design table.  This way if they’re linked to the values, I won’t have to manually go back into the general table and change the configuration names and values if the values ever change.  Any ideas on how to do this would be greatly appreciated!
