Driveworks and Solidworks PDM Integration

I apologize if this is a simple question but I can't seem to find the answer.

We currently have Driveworks Pro 16 producing multiple configurations and designs of several of our standard parts. We are currently in the process of transitioning to Solidworks PDM Pro.

So this issue is that Driveworks will create and name the folder and sub-folder under a specific project and then create the models correctly into that directory. However, when Driveworks creates the folder and structure then the Folder card variables do not get filled out correctly as they would when it was created using the template in PDM.


Is there a way to make Driveworks update these variables? Supecifically ours are called "Work Order" and "Customer" I suspect an Add-in in driveworks using the PDM Api to write the variables.


My coding skills are limited so I'm having a tough time finding an example of this process using VB code. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
