Tables in drawing mode

Ugh, tables in ProE, sorry, Creo...

 

I have created a table with repeat region for use in our assembly drawings and saved it as a ".tbl" file. The trouble is I want to keep sub assemblies out of the table. I just want to see the parts and the quantities of same. I have gone to #Repeat Region, #Filters, #Add and have added "&asm.mbr.type == part", which is what I think should keep assemblies out of the table. But it doesn't.

 

I know I can filter out sub assemblies by "Item", but I want to automate the process and leave the chance of human error out of it. Anyone know how to do this? This is in Creo Elements, i.e. WF 5.0.

Order by index: Table-> repeat regions -> sort regions -> select region -> add -> forward

Re: Tables in drawing mode

I correct myself, I have excluded sub assemblies from the table. My problem was I have 2 assemblies with the same name as two parts, so I got them confused.

Now my next question. How do I order the table by the index parameter? The cell of the repeat region shows "&asm.mbr.INDEX", where "INDEX" is a parameter in each part that returns an integer value. I have used this before in a a previous job but I forget how to set up the table to sort the parts out in order of the INDEX parameter. Anyone?

Thanks.

Hey, do I know you?

No problem! If you have our tips folder, I copied that from a ppt deck called Automatic BOM Exploded View Drawings 09-10-2009. Or I can send you the table file we used.
