Hello everyone.  I have been struggling with getting something to work.  I am working on an automation which runs off of a series of global variables and equations.  I am looking for some new knowledge.


  1. Can someone layout the syntax on how to delete all equations (or the suppressed ones) and unlink the text file yet still keep all global variables?  I can delete the equations folder, but i want to keep the equations folder to retain the global variables.
  2. I am moving to another phase of the automation and want to use excel.  Can someone tell me how to read an cell in excel which has the name of a component and assemble it?  I am looking to have an Access database export a component list to excel, and have Solidworks create an assembly that list.


Any help is appreciated and thanks in advance!
