What I am wanting to do is this.
We have several dynamic models for designing furniture. We use Space design to export predefined component attributes to a CSV sheet which can be read by our ERP system. This in turn creates the parts, BOM’s and Router steps and calculates labour and materials in the system. This works great. The problem is that in order for the ERP system to create the BOM’s, the attributes in the dynamic components for the raw materials must match exactly the names of the raw materials in the ERP system. In order to do this at present we create drop down lists in the model and enter in all the material names.
The issue with this is keeping this up to date across multiple models with an ever changing range of raw materials. Is there some way we can link these drop down lists to a CSV sheet so that we only have to update the one CSV sheet and all models will have access to the same Raw material names?
