Hello,

 

I am trying to figure out a way to get all of my common data (detail numbers, sheet numbers, and when I bubble an item from my BOM) to update easier. The best way I found to do this seems to be using Field. Field works with regular text really well, but I cant figure out how to get the correct data from Mtext or from a table. Meaning, Field pulls all data from Mtext, and only table data from tables (i.e, nothing inserted inside the table, just table height and whatnot).

 

I would like to use a table so that I can copy paste my BOM from excel, and Field reference to the data in that table.

 

If you have an easier solution I would appreciate that too.. Using full Autocad 2017, Mechanical.

 

Also, I tried using Custom Drawing Properties but that maxes out at 10, and I cannot populate it easily from the excel file.

I know I can use sheetset for the sheet numbers, but see no way to use it for the BOM.

I populate Excel information into an AutoCAD Table using a Data Link.

 

If you could post an example of what you are using a Field to do it might be easier to solve. (Post a drawing with clear instructions.)
