Make sure that you have a good idea of what parameters might be included in the tables on the format. IE., part number, description, drawn by and so on. This makes filling out the sheet before doing the drawing.
When you add a format to a drawing, two things happen:
1) All entities (except tables) are overlaid on the drawing. These entities remain part of the format and are not selectable in the drawing. Changes made to these entities in the format will automatically flow through to the drawing. Also, notes can not be parametric (i.e. &partnumber would show up as '&partnumber').
2) Tables are copied to the drawing. The tables then become part of the drawing (not the format) and can be selected, edited and moved on the drawing. Changes made to the tables in the format will NOT flow through to the drawing (you must re-apply the format). Notes entered into tables can be parametric (i.e. &partnumber would show up as 'ABC123').
What you are going to do is standardization for the company. PLAN BEFORE YOU START.
There are two things one should remember.
<LI =Msonormal style="MARGIN: 0mm 0mm 0pt; mso-list: l1 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list 36.0pt">There are some information which remains constant (system driven)</LI>
<LI =Msonormal style="MARGIN: 0mm 0mm 0pt; mso-list: l1 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list 36.0pt">some that vary with every drawing (user driven).</LI>
Information that remains constant are those like the general look of the format, sheet number (parametric), general tolerance standard etc
