drag and drop macro

trying to create macro and i am having a hard time...

1. i want to sense when a file is dropped into an assembly from the design library

2. i want to check to see if that file is part of a folder called "Threaded Inserts"

3. then if that's true i want to see if the part maybe in the assembly or the folder already with the same description.

4. if it is i want to save the part with the filename it already carries with it.

 

i have no problem just finding that part in the assembly folder and renaming and saving it with that part number.

i cant figure out how to get the part i have inserted to get the correct part number if its already in the assembly.

 

maybe this is the kind of thing that should be done using two macros?

let me Know

thanks
