    Macro to change equations after file name changes

    Eric Bartlett

      My question is would it be possible to have a macro change the equation names after I rename files with solidworks explorer. As of now, I have to go back in all of my equations and change the names of sketches to the new part number after a pack and go.

          Eric I believe there is a setting under Tools > Options > Assemblies or external references  about remaining the references on name change which I think should update the equations too (sorry not in front of SW so can't verify).

           

          I'm sure that macro should be able to change the equations but I would suggest you to simply export the equations as external file, open in notepad and using find and replace you can quickly make the changes required. Finally import back them into the model.
