Checking for BOM, and deleting the old one(s)

Hi all,


I use this code to check if the sheet contains a BOM


        Set swView = swDraw.GetFirstView
        Set swTableAnn = swView.GetFirstTableAnnotation
        On Error GoTo Label1
        If swTableAnn.Type = swTableAnnotation_BillOfMaterials Then
        Debug.Print "There is a BOM"
        swBom = 1
        Debug.Print "NO BOM"
        swBom = 0
        End If


But if there is no BOM,

If swTableAnn.Type = swTableAnnotation_BillOfMaterials Then

gives an error. (object variable or with block variable not set)

I tried to circumvent it with an 'on error goto label1' code... but that doesn't work when a drawing has more than 1 sheet.




I use this code to delete all BOMs, but I need it to do it only for the active sheet. (else it will also delete a bom on sheet 2 and then the code above thinks that that sheet never had a bom). It does need to delete all BOMs per sheet though because sometimes the engineers have multiple BOM's on a single sheet.


        While Not swFeat Is Nothing
        If "BomFeat" = swFeat.GetTypeName Then
        swFeat.Select2 True, -1
        End If
        Set swFeat = swFeat.GetNextFeature
        swModel.Extension.DeleteSelection2 swDeleteSelectionOptions_e.swDelete_Absorbed
