Macro to save drawing as pdf with sheetnames renamed to custom property

Hi all

Is it possible to run a macro saving or export each sheet as a separate file and setting that sheet name (sheet1, sheet2) named after a custom property from the part or assembly? I'm using this to save the separate pdf sheets, which works very nice. (see file attached)

This would be very useful to find the right document in a directory for non-CAD users. Would be great if the pdf name could be hooked to a custom property.

(Currently I'm having a  custom property 'article number' concatenated by sw-filename & sw-cfgname)

Even better would be to add the revision nr also , but I'm not sure if tis is manageable since it's a drawing property combined with part/assy properties?

I would like to learn the vba environment, but as work is hectic for more than 6 months now... I don't get to preserve some spare (off-work) time...

Could anyone provide me of guide me to a solution? I see some more post's, and discussions similar, but no real answers...

Thanks already for showing interests!
