Question asked by Tom Gabriel on Jun 11, 2013
Latest reply on Jun 12, 2013 by Tom Gabriel

I am new with creating macros. I have tried to read existing blogs on creating these, and was unsuccessful.


We are currently using SolidWorks 2012 SP5.0


I am trying to get a macro to populate existing custom properties on our drawing file. The custom properties already exist, I would just need the value for each property to be populated. The below properties I would like to have populated by using a macro.   


     1) CreatedDate (Date)

     2) CheckedDate (Date)

     3) CheckedBy (Current User - Text Prompt)


Next i would like to include revision control to be populated within the same macro. This would include the below properties.


     1) Revision (Text Prompt)

     2) Rev_1 (Text Prompt)

     3) Rev_Name (Current User - Text Prompt)

     4) Rev_Date (Date)


If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it.
