Attached is a file that I would like to configure the revolve on top with different colors. I tried the configure feature but the color will not change, it seems to stay at what ever color it was when the part is svaed. Any help would be awesome.

QI Macros is an add-in for Excel for use in Six Sigma. On two machines here, Solidworks stopped being able to create or open Excel driven design tables after it was installed. After removing the installation, everything worked fine. This for reference.

In the Configuration Manager, SW seems to always list theconfiguration names alphabetically, regardless of how the cells areformatted in the Design Table. This causes a problem in a part thatI'm working on where the configuration names are numerical. Forexample, 18 comes before 3 when listed alphabetically. How can Icorrect this?
