Thanks,but is it possible by using parameters???? regrads vishal

Vishal, It's relatively easy to do this with straight relations; your mixture of relations and family table calls is not readily doable. Using just Relations you can do a couple of things. For example, in the Assembly set up a Parameter called LENGTH. Now go to Relations, pick one of your parts to Edit and establish a relation by picking on the dimension and writing something like "d2:2=LENGTH". The ":2" is the key; it's an ID unique to a particular component in the assembly. Similarly, you could also set up a Parameter in the part called LENGTH, then in the assembly write "LENGTH:2=LENGTH". The 1st LENGTH is the one in the part; the 2nd is the one in the assembly. David
