Making your Drawing Tables Jump in SolidWorks

This particular topic comes often in various SolidWorks forums that “Can the Tables be moved to another sheets in a Drawing“. The answer is simply Yes and there are various ways to move them to different sheet.

Let’s check the various tables used in SolidWorks first:

In this post, I will be trying to discuss various ways using which one can move these tables to different sheet in a drawing.  You can use any of the methods below to move the table onto other sheet. I have used BOM table to explain these methods and some of the methods explained below might not work on all types of tables.

Cut and paste Method

1. Click on the table you want to move (in the drawing area).

2. Press Ctrl + X (cut) on the keyboard or Edit > Cut.

3. Activate the sheet you want to move the table onto by right clicking on it in the manager tree and select Activate or click on it in the sheet tab.

4. Press Ctrl + V (paste) on the keyboard or Edit > Paste.

5. Your table is now on new sheet, you can set its position as required.

Drag Table Method-1

1. Select the table you want to move from manager tree by clicking on it.

2. With the table selected, keep the left mouse button pressed and drag the table below the sheet name on which you want to move the table onto.  Pay attention to change in pointer when you do that.

3. Your table is now on new sheet, you can set its position as required.

Drag Table Method-2

1. Click on the table you want to move (in the drawing area).

2. With the table selected, take your pointer to the cross (refer picture).

3. Keep the left mouse button pressed and drag the table on the sheet name (in the sheet tab area) on which you want to move the table onto.  Pay attention to change in pointer when you do that.

4. Your table is now on new sheet, you can set its position as required.
