How do I export the description from a part file to excel or text file? Have 6,000+ files that I need to get the description from.
Welcome to SolidWorks forums Kevin.
A macro can do the job by pulling the information in to an excel/txt file but this would need files to be opened up whereas using a FSO script, you can get the information via windows.

I haven't used macros or FSO scripts. Where is a good resource on how to create macro's?
I know how to do it with macro (but this is a slower process as this involves opening the file).
Using FSO or Doucment manager, this would be fast as no need to open the files. Let me try to test one and share with you.
Sorry for a late reply but try the attached macro.
