William, First of all, rename the dimension from the default name (such as d12) to L. Then, in the drawing, access the dimension properties by double-clicking the dimension. Edit the dimension text from @D to @S. The dimension will display symbolically rather than numerically, showing the symbol L. You can automate a table for a family of parts. The part would have to have a family table in the 3d model to vary the dimension L. Then in the drawing, set up a table with a repeat region (of 2D type, not the simple type) That will allow you to display in the table the range of values of L and the names of the associated parts.
