Convert to late binding

I have a lot of troubles with early binding recently. I get either corrupted macros, or solidworks crash.

either way, I cannot open or edit my macros at all.

I had to open the macro with other versions of solidworks, and uncheck all the references. save.

then I can open my macros.


after a while it may corrupt again.


I moved from early binding to late binding to avoid checking boxes in reference.


'for the program, it is pretty clear I can do this.

dim swApp as object


swApp = CreateObject("SldWorks.Application")


but how do i bind a model to ModelDoc2, and ModelDocExtion?

tried CreateObject("ModelDoc2.SldWorks") CreateObject("ModelDoc2.Application") and all combinations.

VBA told me, i cannot create object in ActiveX.


Could anyone brief me where I can get the strings for CreateObject method, and how I can bind to objects other than SldWorks.Application.
