configuration tables

PrachiPrachi Member, OS Professional Posts: 262 PRO
Have not been able to find an answer to this question from help files. Maybe looking for something not there.
Have been setting up a configuration table for selection based on vendor chart of stock.
Nicest way I can think of is to view as chart like given and simply check or uncheck availability as shown in chart. This would be much easier to handle when new materials available or previous stock no longer available.
2 lists for tube diameter and wall thickness. Can add to lists as needed and use a check box.
As it stands now I seem to need individual entry's for each stock item. A rather long list and a bit cumbersome.
Any thoughts welcomed.

    you can't configure what is inside another configuration table. Which is what you're going for.

    You will likely need to create 2 lists, then have the checkboxes set a variable in the tree.

    then use "if" logic to return a broken part if the configuration doesn't exist... but that still is like guess and check when trying to choose a config.

    The best way would be  a single list that gives all options.

    0.250 x 0.035
    0.312 x 0.035
    0.312 x 0.058
    ...

    I ended up with the single list. A bit cumbersome if needs updating but works.
