Our design team uses Solid Works and have 1000's of files.

Does anyone know how to extract the properties of all files in a folder and store them in a database (using VB/VBA)?

Or give me a place to start?

Sub main()

Dim swApp As Object
Sub main()
Dim Part As SldWorks.ModelDoc2
Dim PartNumber As String
    Set swApp = Application.SldWorks

    Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set a = fs.CreateTextFile("C:\File.csv", True)

    FileName = Dir("C:\Temp\*.SLDPRT")
    Visibility = swApp.DocumentVisible(False, swDocPART)
    a.writeline ("Part Number" & "," & "Description")

    Do While FileName <> ""
        Set Part = swApp.OpenDoc("C:\Temp\" & FileName, swDocPART)
        Description = Part.GetCustomInfoValue("", "DESCRIPTION")
        PartNumber = Part.GetCustomInfoValue("", "Part_No.")
        a.writeline (PartNumber & "," & Description)
        swApp.CloseDoc FileName
        FileName = Dir
    Loop

    Visibility = swApp.DocumentVisible(True, swDocPART)

End Sub
