yes that is correct. i had no problems with the first 15 tables. I even tried combining some tables to be only 12, but "table / insert from datalink / create new datalink" still locks me up every time........short of upgrading to 2009 or 2010 (not gonna happen) what do i do?
fastest processor and most ram in the 50+ computers here
BUT my spreadsheet is way over 2000 cells
largest named range to which a datalink links=500 cells
i hate to do it but i may have to add the tables 'cutandpaste' in which case they will no longer be dynamic
OK i will try that when i get back to the office on monday and i'll let you know
HOW TO REMOVE THIS DATA LINK FILE FROM XREF IN AUTOCAD
if it is the first one:
1) First make sure the datalink is not being used. if it is being used, click on a cell in the table that is using the datalink. right-click then choose DATALINK >>detach datalink. this will detach the datalink from the table.
2) Second type DATALINK. This will display the Data Link Manager.
3) Highlight the datalink you wish to delete.
4) Right click and pick delete.
5)click "OK" to close the Data Link Manager
if it is the second one:
to my knowledge, there is not a way to do this without doing the steps above first and that may not be an option for you. These answers are based on AutoCAD200. I do not know if AutoCAD2009 or AutoCAD2010 can do it.
