Get a part feature name associated to an assembly mate

I'm looking for a way to print a file of the hardware mates within an assembly.  We have run into situations where there is a 10-32 tap with an M5 screw mated to the tap.  I'm working on a way to traverse the mates and print a list of components and the component features that they are mated to in the assembly.

I found an VBA example that traverses all the mates in the assembly, but I need it to go one step farther.

I need the feature name where the component is mated.  Is this possible?

 

For instance:

    Concentric9

      Type         = 1

      AlignFlag    = 1

      CanBeFlipped = False

      Component    = A - Flange1-1

      MateEntType  = 4

      Feature Name = #10-32 Tapped Hole1

 

    Concentric9

      Type         = 1

      AlignFlag    = 1

      CanBeFlipped = False

      Component    = HX-SHCS, 10-32 (ALL LENGTHS)-1

      MateEntType  = 4

      Feature Name = Base-Revolve
