Hi All,


I have started to write a macro to rename the Cut-List folder. The folder to be renamed by prefix defined as an Input followed by numbers 001,002 and so on..

The code is below. At the moment, I cannot get this code to go through all the folders and does work only for the first folder. I was wondering if someone could help me on that.


Sub main()


Set swApp = Application.SldWorks

Set Part = swApp.ActiveDoc

Set SelMgr = Part.SelectionManager

Part.ClearSelection2 True

boolstatus = Part.Extension.SelectByID2("Cut-List-Item1", "SUBWELDFOLDER", 0, 0, 0, False, 0, Nothing, 0)

Dim prefixName As String

Dim foldercount As Integer

foldercount = 1

prefixName = InputBox("Enter a prefix for the cut-list folder names")

SelMgr.GetSelectedObject5(1).Name = prefixName + IIf(foldercount < 10, "00" + CStr(foldercount), IIf(foldercount < 100, "0" + CStr(foldercount), CStr(foldercount)))

    foldercount = foldercount + 1

End Sub
