Hello everyone!


As described in the title im looking for a macro for Solidworks where i can select specific mate's, all who contain the word "Concentric" and "BN"


I don't have much experience with VBA, so I hope someone can help me out here. At the moment I'm getting as far as I can select a specific reference with it.


This is the code i wrote.


Dim swApp As Object

Dim Part As Object
Dim boolstatus As Boolean
Dim longstatus As Long, longwarnings As Long

Sub main()

Set swApp = Application.SldWorks

Set Part = swApp.ActiveDoc
boolstatus = Part.Extension.SelectByFeature("concentric10823391", "MATE", 0, 0, 0, True, 0, Nothing, 0)

End Sub


and i need something like that


boolstatus = Part.Extension.SelectByFeature("concentric" "BN", "MATE", 0, 0, 0, True, 0, Nothing, 0)


but i think its way more complicated than i just assumed.


Thanks for all the help,
