Sub main()


Dim swApp As SldWorks.SldWorks

Dim swModel As SldWorks.ModelDoc2

Dim swDesignTable As SldWorks.DesignTable

Dim cells(1) As String

Dim boolstatus As Boolean


Set swApp = Application.SldWorks

Set swModel = swApp.ActiveDoc

Set swDesignTable = swModel.GetDesignTable


' Name of configuration for newly created row

cells(0) = "190"

' Data for Column B of newly created row

cells(1) = "S"


boolstatus = swDesignTable.AddRow((cells))

boolstatus = swDesignTable.UpdateTable(SwConst.swDesignTableUpdateOptions_e.swUpdateDesignTableAll, True)
