## How to do total of table content?

the lenght in table is driven by parameters..

i use relation in assembly to add all the lenght parameters

and is working fine but...

now, i need to add two new angles in this assembly and i want automated addition of length by the time i add them up in assembly.

is it possible? or any solution plz share

Hi Dalbeer...

Are you looking for a simple Summation of the lengths in your table? If so, there's literally a Summation command for repeat regions that can handle this (provided those length values are real numbers and not strings).

If I'm misunderstanding your question, please let me know. If you need a picture or some quick step by step instructions, let me know.

Thanks!

Hi Dalbeer...

Not my usual quality but it's 5:30am and I haven't slept! I hope this gets the point across. Write back if this doesn't make sense.

I really, really hope that makes sense. The Summation tool is useful but rarely used because it has some idiosyncrasies that need to be heeded for the function to work. This should be what you're looking for. Good luck!

Thanks!

Dear Brian,

thanx 4 ur fast prompt. but i think i hvnt explain clearly the problrm .. if u look at the PIC, the table shows 6 itmes from 2-7 where they hv qty and lenght mentioned now i want that the table should calculate sum of all the lenght of parts itself (qty.*length and then total sum). and when i add another part into the assm. it automaticaly genrate the sum in table.

Thanx

Put a cell to the right that is the multiplication of the two columns, then use Brian's method to sum up the up the multiplication column.

Hi Dale/Dalbeer...

I went to bed thinking this same thing (as Dale's idea). Basically Dalbeer, you can use a table relation to multiply the quantity value by the length value. Something like:

x = qty * length

Creo/ProE will use this relation to automatically calculate the "x" value for each item in the BOM. Once you have that, you can use the technique I posted the first time to get your summation. As a side note, it may be possible to create the relation and not show the "x" value in it's own column before summing. I haven't tried this though. It may be necessary to add "x" to it's own column before it can be summed. You'll have to give it a try to find out for certain.

If you have trouble with this, just let me know and I'll do another couple of slides to demonstrate.

Thanks!
