Automate changing the part template at the part level

I have a batch of about 200 files that when the machine was designed, we used a custom property template to set things like description, manufacturer, material, etc.


Today, we use a different template that while it includes the same information, some items are removed. We did this because we use a program to push the solidworks data into an ordering system. When some items are populated, our purchasing system won't like it and pushes the file back, hence, setting up the new template.


I'm looking for a Macro or a way to use #task to batch process these files.


Basically, I want to open a part file, click on the custom properties tab, click on the "click for template options" button, select a new template from the list, refresh, save, and close.


Is there any macro that exists that can achieve this task or one of the current #task ones that exist?
