....but the last time I looked into accessing"SolidWorks" vaiables, I was told that "Part Number (PARTNUMBER)", "Item Number (ITEM NO." and "Quantity (Qty)" were not accessable by the user. You can use all three in a BOM and you can use "$PARTNUMBER" in a design table but none of them can be used in file properties.
Something might have changed and API may provide some capabilities that I am unaware of but as far as I know there isn't any direct means for access/use.
Wow; that's quite an omission, huh? Seems like they could figure out how to make it read-only, but grant access to it...
