Batch delete list of files in Excel spreadsheet

Question asked by Chris Manger on Oct 5, 2017

I have about 10,000 files I need to delete from PDM.   I generated this list by exported search from the vault (Search tool) and sorting/filtering the items I want to delete.  The files are in various folders throughout the vault.  Is there a tool that I can feed a list of files (full path) and it would delete these files?    I have written many macros for SolidWorks (VBA), but I cannot seem to find any VBA code for PDM that I can use in Excel.   Does this exist?


Any tips/suggestions appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance.
