adding table - exploded parts

Hi,
Please see attached file, I am trying to do the sheet below more efficently.

At the moment for my price list I have:

1. x-refed all components into 1 drawing (paper space)
2. separated views into each drawing
3. created individual tables in microsoft word (office 365 which is a pita itself)
4. inserted  the tables as OLE objects into each dwg.

editing the microsoft word document does not seem to update (this was mentioned previous as a problem) in the drawing so I have to delete and reinsert each time..

Long story short am I better of just creating a table in TC alone and ditch any importing of microsoft word documents.

thanks
Brett

Long story short, OLE Objects are not fully supported by Microsoft any more and their use in TurboCAD is not recommended (see http://doc.imsidesign.com/articles/#!turbocad-2018-user-guide-publication/inserting-an-ole-object-1/q/OLE/qid/1747/qp/1).

You can try Insert Table (see http://doc.imsidesign.com/articles/turbocad-2018-user-guide-publication/insert-table-1) to develop another approach.
