    Drawing Custom Property Macro

    Tom Gabriel

      I am new with creating macros. I have tried to read existing blogs on creating these, and was unsuccessful.

       

      We are currently using SolidWorks 2012 SP5.0

       

      I am trying to get a macro to populate existing custom properties on our drawing file. The custom properties already exist, I would just need the value for each property to be populated. The below properties I would like to have populated by using a macro.   

       

           1) CreatedDate (Date)

           2) CheckedDate (Date)

           3) CheckedBy (Current User - Text Prompt)

       

      Next i would like to include revision control to be populated within the same macro. This would include the below properties.

       

           1) Revision (Text Prompt)

           2) Rev_1 (Text Prompt)

           3) Rev_Name (Current User - Text Prompt)

           4) Rev_Date (Date)

       

      If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it.
