CADWorx Spec Editor Home tab: Add Table > Data Table

Adds a data table to a Data Tables specific selected category in Catalog Data. This option is only available when categories have been previously created, and a particular category must be selected. For more information, see Data Tables folder.

Name

Specifies the table name. You can use commas within table names, however, the software restricts the following characters in the table name: < > / \ " : ? * | = ` '. The software also limits the name to 255 characters.

Category

Specifies the category of the data table. If you add a data table by a group folder, then you can select a category from the list. If you have added a data table to a category, then this option becomes unavailable.

Type

Specifies the component type applied to the table. For more information, see Data Tables Properties.

Size Table

Specifies the size table attached to the data table.

Part Number

Specifies the part number assigned to the table.

Selection Code

Specifies a selection code for the gasket and bolt data tables. The Selection Code option is only available when you add a gasket or bolt data table. For more information, see Selection Codes, and Selection Codes Tutorial.

Default Component Settings

Group Name

Specifies a group for the data table. You can select a category from the list, or type a name in the Group box. You can also click the Group ellipsis , and then add groups to the Group Data Table Manager. The Group box defaults to the group folder you select in Data Tables. For more information, see Data Table List Mode Panel, and Group Data Table Manager Dialog Box.

BOM Type

Specifies the default bill of material type for the component.

Layer Name

Specifies the default layer of the component.

Color Index

Specifies the default color of the component in a drawing. Select 0 - ByLayer, 1 - Red, 2 - Yellow, 3 - Green, 4 - Cyan, 5 - Blue, 6 - Magenta, 7 - White/Black, from the list or type 0 through 255 to specify other colors.

Topworks

Specifies the default topworks for the component. The Topworks option enables when the component requires a topwork detail.

Sort Sequence

Specifies the location of the item in the bill of material. This number is pulled from the program code when adding a new component. However, when editing an existing component, the program code from the original selection stays the same. You have the option to leave this number as it is or change it based on the following. If you entered 999, this component is placed last in the list. If you enter 0, it is first in the list. If you set the same sort numbers for different components in the specification, CADWorx places the components in the list in an alphabetical order.

Isogen Identifier

Specifies the default identifier used by Isogen for the component. For more information, see SKEY Information in the CADWorx Plant User's Guide.

Specifies the applicable gasket for the component based on the selection code. The value that you choose in the Applicable Gaskets list determines the gasket that inserts when you place a component pair that requires a gasket, such as flanged components, clamped components, flanged end-types, and clamped end types. You can either type the code in the Applicable Gaskets box, or select an available code from the list. The Applicable Gaskets option only displays when the component allows a gasket. To assign selection codes, see Selection Codes Tutorial, and Assign selection codes to components without catalog defaults.
