Newbie problem - how to get "description" property

Hi folks,

This is a very low level problem, but it seems almost impossible to search for as almost everything seems to contain the word "Description". I've found numerous ways of extracting custom properties and feature properties, but not the boring old "Description" value. Help!

 

I'm attempting to modify the generic "Save as PDF" macro so that it creates a PDF file name using "Solidworks filename - Description.pdf" in the original directory.

But I can't find the code equivalent of NewFilePath = PathNoExtention + Part.GetDescription & "pdf" (I know this is wrong)

 

So what's the simple way of doing this?
