Command Line to Open a Drawing and run a Macro

My goal is to open a Drawing and run a macro on that drawing using the windows command prompt (cmd).

 

In the command prompt, this will open Solidworks:

"C:\Program Files\SOLIDWORKS Corp\SOLIDWORKS (2)\" 

 

This will open Solidworks and then run the macro:

"C:\Program Files\SOLIDWORKS Corp\SOLIDWORKS (2)\" /m "P:\Web Exchange\Ryan F\SW Settings\ExportBOMWorking2.swp"

 

This will open Solidworks and run the macro upon the program starting but does not open the drawing:

"C:\Program Files\SOLIDWORKS Corp\SOLIDWORKS (2)\" "P:\Web Exchange\Ryan F\BOM Export from SW\PLD100A40F1\PLD100A40F1.SLDDRW" /m "P:\Web Exchange\Ryan F\SW Settings\ExportBOMWorking2.swp"

 

This will open the Drawing but will not start the macro:

"P:\Web Exchange\Ryan F\BOM Export from SW\PLD100A40F1\PLD100A40F1.SLDDRW" "/m" "P:\Web Exchange\Ryan F\SW Settings\ExportBOMWorking2.swp"

 

What is the correct cmd syntax to open the drawing and run the macro on that drawing?

 

Thanks
