    Solidworks Save As Without Overwrite

    Brian Mick



      I have a macro that makes new drawings, and it saves them per a part number I am supplying with a message box.  If I make an error, the macro will over-write existing files.  I do not want it to do this. 


      I found this code in a previous discussion:


      If System.IO.File.Exists("K:\Models\" + FileName + ".SLDDRW") Then

          MsgBox ("File Already Exists")


      End If


      But it gives me "Compile Error: Method or data member not found"


      I am using the SaveAs method from the SldWorks.ModelDoc2 object.  Is there a way to prevent overwriting existing files?


      Thanks so much!
