I have this kind of macro

   Dim swApp               As SldWorks.SldWorks

    Dim swModel             As SldWorks.ModelDoc2

    Dim swModelDocExt       As SldWorks.ModelDocExtension

    Dim swExportData        As SldWorks.ExportPdfData

    Dim boolstatus          As Boolean

    Dim filename            As String

    Dim lErrors             As Long

    Dim lWarnings           As Long

    Dim amountSaved         As Double


Sub main()


    Set swApp = Application.SldWorks

    Set swModel = swApp.ActiveDoc

    amountSaved = 0

    If swModel Is Nothing Then

        MsgBox "Ei Olemassa Olevaa Tiedostoa", vbCritical


    End If

    If swModel.GetType <> swDocDRAWING Then

        MsgBox "Tämä Macro Toimii Vain Työkuva Näkymässä", vbCritical


    End If

    Set swModelDocExt = swModel.Extension

    Set swExportData = swApp.GetExportFileData(swExportPdfData)

    filename = swModel.GetPathName

    If filename = "" Then

        MsgBox "Tallenna Tiedosto ensin ja kokeile uudestaan", vbCritical


    End If


    'Save drawing

    boolstatus = swExportData.SetSheets(swExportData_ExportAllSheets, 1)

    boolstatus = swModelDocExt.SaveAs(filename, 0, 0, swExportData, lErrors, lWarnings)

    If boolstatus Then

        amountSaved = amountSaved + 1



On the part

If filename = "" Then

        MsgBox "Tallenna Tiedosto ensin ja kokeile uudestaan", vbCritical

If SLDDRW solidworks drawing isn't yet saved this MsgBox says this file not yet saved.

I would like this to work so that if the drawing isn't saved It would save it with the same name as the part name. This is normally the preference.

Ideally I would get MsgBox that would ask "drawing is not saved do you want to save this drawing with the name of part1.SLDDRW"

Then just an option to hit ok or cancel and preferably the ok already highlighted Is this even possible.

Rest of my macro is just to save PDF and DXF. But I just want this so I can save all 3 at the same time even though SLDDRW is never saved before.


Thanks in advance
