OpenDoc6 wont open file if another file is open

Hi All,

 

I am trying to open documents with a macro and i can do this no worries following the basic code below

 

Set Part = swApp.OpenDoc6("C://..first part....., Filetype, 0, "", longstatus, longwarnings)

Set Part = swApp.OpenDoc6("C://.second part....., Filetype, 0, "", longstatus, longwarnings)

 

However as soon as i changed the hard code of the file location to a variable ie replacing "C://..." with the variable FirstVariable, once the first file has opened the second file wont open.

I have found if i open an assembly first i can get a drawing to open but not the other way around. This work around worked for a bit until i wont to have both an assemly and drawing open and now trying to get a part to open and cannot get any where.

I have checked filed types and the like, copied file paths. Tested opening just one file and it works but as soon as another file is open it wont.

Any thoughts.

Thanks
