Saving Design Tables

You can save design tables directly in SOLIDWORKS.

To save a design table:

  1. In a document with a design table, do one of the following:
    • Select Excel Design Table in the ConfigurationManager, then click File > Save As.
    • Right-click Excel Design Table in the ConfigurationManager and select Save Table.
  2. Enter a File name, then click Save.
    The design table is saved as an Excel file (*.xls).
    Due to a Microsoft limitation, changes to linked design tables may not be saved if they contain values that are linked to other spreadsheets. To save the design table, you can:
    • Remove the linked values from the design table.
    • Clear Link to file in the Excel Design Table PropertyManager to unlink the design table from the model.
