I have a global variable named "length" that changes the length of a line in my model. I am trying to write a macro to change the value of length, however my macro only seems to work when I set a number equal to length (such as: swEqnMgr.Equation(1) = """length""= 7"). I can't get my macro to work with a variable as shown below. I'd like to get it to work with a variable so that I can iterate the value of length.
Dim swApp As SldWorks.SldWorks
Dim swModel As SldWorks.ModelDoc2
Dim swEqnMgr As SldWorks.EquationMgr
Dim newLength As Variant
Set swApp = Application.SldWorks
Set swModel = swApp.ActiveDoc
Set swEqnMgr = swModel.GetEquationMgr
newLength = 9
swEqnMgr.Equation(1) = """length""= newLength"
