Import Tool List with Tool Spread Sheet

When importing tools from spread sheet would be great if a variable was added so the holder id could be imported from the spread sheet also.  Currently when it imports all the tools it names the holder id "Holder" .  We use the holder ID on our vericut report so we have to go in and rename hundreds of holders when we have to rebuild the library.  We had originally thought the "Holder Referenence ID" would work but couldn't get it to and after contacting support they said it wasn't possible currently.

Re: Import Tool List with Tool Spread Sheet

Names for cutter, each holder etc.  In the model based world the "least common denominator" is the least useful information.  As much of the original information as possible needs to be kept when moving data in the model based world.   I had to go through "names being used" twice on imports.  The last time was the TDM interface.  Both sides had to update the data that was being used.   

Keeping names, ID's, and more needs to be an interface standard, not a request.
