Symbol lookup tables allow you to drive parameters of a symbol using import data from a spreadsheet, database, or any other ODBC data source. Lookup tables are ideal for use with Ortho and Structural content. These imported values save time, allowing you to use a single key column to specify numerous attribute and parameter values for a symbol.

The Lookup Table command takes a snapshot of the specified data source and generates an .xml file containing the information in the data source. When you have generated the .xml file containing the data, you can select a particular set of values for the selected symbols from a combo box in the Attribute Viewer. This combo box contains the list of values in the key column defined in the data source.

To use this functionality, you must install the Symbol Authoring option.
