VBA macro - Export a "Bill of Materials" containing configured parts

Can anybody help?


I have a Solidworks vba macro that exports a bill of materials to a txt file that can be opened using notepad.


At present this works ok!


Unfortunately I am having trouble exporting parts, imported from the "design library" that contains parts with multiple configurations. Please see the attached picture.


Say I import a flange, from the design library "routing" section. This flange has many size configurations.


How can I export a bill of materials, using a vba macro, to include the flange selected from the drop down list?


In this case "Socket Flange 150-NPS1.25"


Many thanks in advance!
