Excel VBA Quotation tool to open, refresh, print, and save/saveas Autodesk Inventor 2011 files
Posted on 2011-03-08
We have a quotation tool that runs some file save and folder generations I would like to add a routine to convert the "Quote" to a project and link it to the Ilogic rouitines I have generated in Autodesk inventor 2011. The Ilogic is triggered by a file open / save. Phase one is to produce sales and shop drawings with the ilogic tool set then triger these tools from excel as the project folders are generated. I would like to trigger this from the excel quotation tool as a macro if possible. quote tool uses outlook to send email:
Set myOlApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set myitem = myOlApp.CreateItem(olMailItem)
is there a similar command for Autodesk Inventor?
I am self taught as a programer and would much appreciate any help i can get on the VBA side. I am very skilled in inventor and will handel the ilogic side interenally.
