How to open file from drawing in PDM?

I'm new to PDM and the PDM API. 

I'm trying to check out/open a part file from a drawing file that is already open. Then, I want to be able to change custom properties in the part file, save it, close it, and check it out. I already have a VBA macro add in that does what I want to do outside of the vault, but it won't open part files from drawings within the vault.

 

I'm not sure what to use (IEdmFileXX, IEdmItemX, etc) or how to use it. Any help would be appreciated.

 

Slightly different topic, but it might be worth investing in a class or online course from CADSharp if I have to work with PDM Professional.
