PDM Copy Task

Hi all,

I'm setting up a task in PDM that will copy a set of files to another folder outside PDM.

I am not very familiar with VBA, so I need to know the best way to go about this.


  1. Should the task run from solidworks, or from another program? (swApp option)
  2. I just need to take a given set of files, put them in PDM, and put it through a transition that will trigger the task. The files will then be added to any files previously in the external folder.
  3. Also, I need the task to only copy the selected folder, so some sort of variable will have to account for that
  4. If you all could give me direction on the code, that would be very appreciated!
