Macro to copy Excel data to Custom Properties... need a little help

I have an Excel file "Random Part Numbers" that I need to open, copy the the data from cell A1, overwrite this value the "PARTNUM" custom property of the new, open, and unsaved part, then close the Excel file. So far, the open an close commands work, but copying the Excel data and overwriting the parts custom property is holding me up.

Any help would be appreciated. Im new to macros & VB.

This is what I have so far:


Option Explicit

Dim xlRange As Range

Dim swCustPrpMgr As SldWorks.CustomPropertyManager

Dim swApp As SldWorks.SldWorks

Dim swModel As SldWorks.ModelDoc2

Dim xlApp As Excel.Application

Dim xlSheet As Excel.Worksheet

Dim xlBooks As Excel.Workbooks


' Open Excel workbook

Sub Main()

    Set swApp = Application.SldWorks

    Set swModel = swApp.ActiveDoc

    Set xlApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")

    xlApp.Visible = True

    xlApp.Workbooks.Open "H:\CAD\SolidWorks\Macros\Random Part Numbers.xlsx"

    Set xlSheet = xlApp.ActiveSheet


' Copy data from Excel to Custom Properties

    Set swApp = Application.SldWorks

    Set swModel = swApp.ActiveDoc

    Set xlApp = GetObject(, "Excel.Application")

    Set xlSheet = xlApp.ActiveSheet

    Name = xlSheet.Cells(1, 1)

    swModel.AddCustomInfo3 "", "PARTNUM", swCustomInfoText, Name


' Close Excel





End Sub
