update-able macro based on Excel file input

I’ve written a macro in SolidWorks in order to make a 3D Model/Drawing based on defined parameters in an Excel file.

I want to modify the SolidWorks model based on the changes done in the Excel file. On one hand, I want to modify the SolidWorks model, on the other hand, I  don’t want to make a new 3D model in the case of any changes in the excel file. Because making a new model will make the previously generated drawing invalid and destroy the dimensions added to that drawing.

I couldn’t find any solution to make the update-able macro.

I would like to know if there is any function/method in SolidWorks API to modify the SolidWorks model as I explained.

Thank you in advance,
