MBD- Hole table

I'm using MBD and I have a large plate with many holes. Is it possible to do horizontal ordinate dimensions and if not, Is it possible to make a hole table with MBD?

Hi Oboe,

 

Both would be ideal because I often use ordinate dimension for other drawings and not just this hole plate. For the part I already put dimensions on the holes. As you see a hole table for this example would be the best solution.

I think there is a way to use an excel spreadsheet to drive a pattern of holes. I forgot the tool to be used, a design table?

So I tried the excel sheet hole table, but things weren't going smoothly. The part wasn't linking to Excel. I could have been doing it wrong.

Hi Zack,

You can do it through customer portal, and there's a post on the SOLIDWORKS Blog explaining in detail how to do it:
