Table to geometry

Table to geometry

Table to geometry

Morning All,

Does anyone know if you can convert a table to geometry in v5?


RE: Table to geometry

Why would you need that?

RE: Table to geometry

Is it a Design Table ?

RE: Table to geometry

I have been using a table to add the new revision history.
I’ve been told it has to be geometry, ie lines and text.
Seems stupid but it is what it is.
I was hoping I could ‘explode’ the table ( or something like that) but doesn’t seem possible.
So, I’m now looking at a macro to add generic
Text and build a box around it instead of pasting a table.
Just looking at building lines in background view at the moment.
Thanks for replying

RE: Table to geometry

Each table cell is a text internally. The only reason to explode a table is to manage it's border lines.

I strongly suggest you to find out a real reason that stands behind task in discussion instead of "it is what it is"'ing it.

Without a goal exploding geometry looks like a stupid idea to me.

RE: Table to geometry

This might help.

Will still need to manually add lines.
I haven't tried it, but you could save the excel as text and copy paste as needed.

RE: Table to geometry

thanks for the replies,

For how many sheets there were I just changed them (copy and paste) and altered text where required.

I'd like to think there's a reason they don't want a table but probably just being awkward.
