    Opening a model with a Data Card Button

    Brian Cannon

      Is it possible to open a model (or drawing) in one folder from another folder by using a command button and reading the number in the Edit Box? Clicking on the Open Main G.A. button would open model D01-1234 in Solidworks.


      Using Command string and the Solidworks path "C:\Program Files\SOLIDWORKS Corp\SOLIDWORKS\SLDWORKS.exe" in the button opens Solidworks, but I am not sure how to go from there without having to browse.


      Edited: I am using PDM Standard 2016.
