export your excel tables to CATIA V5
Quick and easy way to make your tables
Have you ever tried to create and edit CATIA tables? If so, you already know that they are a bit … rigid. Although everything works as it should, process of creation and edition is not as effective as in other editors like Excel. You can’t use arrows to navigate to desired cell, you can’t press ENTER or TAB key to move to next cell and no copy & paste of data within your table is allowed. Solution is however quite easy. Prepare your table in Excel and when you are ready, export it to CATIA. With this application you can do it.
