    api to ignore read only document

    Peter Farnham


      I have this piece of code that updates my files is a chosen folder, but ignores read only files by not opening then. (in bold) (file Attributes set as read only)


      When I am logged into the vault, files that I don't own are shown as read only at the top of the Solidworks interface (when opened), but these files still open as the file attributes in the folder are not set to read only.


      Is there some code that will see that I don't own a file and skip that file if Solidworks states it is read only?


      Many thanks




      Sub ProcessFolder(myFolder As String)

          Dim myFold As Folder

          Dim fso As New Scripting.FileSystemObject

          Dim myFile As File

          Dim myType As Long

          Dim myFileName As String

          Dim mySubFold As Folder

         Dim myAtt As Long


          Set myFold = fso.GetFolder(myFolder)


          For Each myFile In myFold.Files

              myFileName = myFile.Path

             myAtt = myFile.Attributes

              If myAtt And 1 Then GoTo Skip2 'readonly file
