Filters in Pro Engineer Tables

Hi On a drawing I can use the parameter "&model_name" to display the current model name in a drawing. I want to use this parameter (which is a std proe drawing parameter) in my table repeat region filter but it wont except it. Any help on how I can get this done. My table pulls in all the parts of the assemly of my drawing and I just want to filter out the main assembly via name, without having to go filter by item. Thanks

Hi Hendrik The BOM tables I generate use &asm.mbr.name instead of using "&model_name" in the repeat region to show the model name. To filter out a specific model for example an assembly called 123456.asm: Table>Repeat Region>Filters>....(pick the repeat region)...Add> &asm.mbr.name != 123456 Done>Done>Done/Return I hope that helps.

That is all and well if you want to use the table for aspecific drawing with a specific model name only. My idea is that I want to creae a genereic table that I can insert into any of my drawings and that it will filter out the Main Assembly from the table. My BOM tables use &asm.mbr."user defined paremeter that is driven by the relations in the part". I have in the past used a paramter that I created in the parts called "FILTER = "A" and then on my drawing I created a rule on the table to not include anything with the filter = A. but I want to know if there is a better way in doing this. Thanks

Thanks for the help. I forgot about the Flat/Recursive function. That solved my problem.
