Hello, I have recently started using macros in Solid Works and have mostly been using the macro recorder to create the script in VBA. I have trouble recording the 'Extend Surface Command' . How do I select an Edge while recording a macro(WITHOUT picking it from the GUI) ? When I record the 'Extend Surface' command and re run the macro it doesn't execute the command .

 

I read that the best practice when recording the macro is to select features, bodies , sketches etc. from the feature tree. But how do I select an edge without using the GUI ? I have tried right clicking and going to 'select other' and then picking the Edge. But even then the macro doesn't run the command.
