Pack & Go with PDF Macro

Question asked by Steve Bridges on Feb 15, 2016

This is my first post. I hope you all enjoy it.

I have assembled a macro to automatically `Pack and Go` a drawing with all its part and assembly files to a destination on our network. The macro also produces a PDF of the drawing into the same location on our network.

Both the zipped Pack & Go file and the PDF share the same file name and revision level.

In the macro I have been able to get the revision information to automatically be added to the file name but i have to manually enter the drawing number.

I can't find a way to have the `Evaluated Value` Number information (`Number` is the property name) to be added automatically to the dialogue box so that I can check the file number is going to be correct.

This file number has to be checked due to incorrect ways that SolidWorks has been used in the past and the `Value/Text Expression` entry is unreliable.

Any help with this problem or maybe a better way to do it would be gratefully appreciated.
