Hi folks,


Is it possible to access Workgroup PDM without a running instance of SolidWorks using the API (e.g. from Excel)?

I'm thinking about an office add-in that is able to change the document properties within the vault.


In my company the electronics developers use EAGLE to create PCB layouts but unfortunately there is no connection between the electronics output and our mechanics output which is stored in a Workgroup vault. I'm thinking of creating a interface for the electronic developers so that they can change the revision or specs of SW documents (PCB models) in the vault.
