Rename Custom property Name NOT the Value

Hi everyone,

 

I am trying to compose a macro that will allow me to rename the Custom Property Name by keeping it's value.

I thought it will be something like a find & replace procedure am I right???

 

This is actually the first step as the second part will require to open the relevant drawing file of a part or an assy and replace

the link of the old custom property name in the title block.

 

Find below a more detailed example:

 

User: Open part or Assy and Run Macro...

Macro: It will find the custom property with existing name "Part Number (AD)"

and it will replace it with a New custom property name as "Part Number (AD)-1"

Then,

The Macro will open the drawing that have the same name with the already open part or assy.

It will edit the title-block and it will replace the old custom property link with the new one.

 

Please let me know your thoughts if what I'm looking is not too crazy.

 

Regards
