Running Inventor 2010 on XP 32 bit platform.
I've got two questions of entirely different nature... hopefully I'm not breaking any forum rules or unwritten formalities by asking them in the same post; I'm new to the forum.
1. I'm using Excel driven general tables for my parts list in idw's and I would like to select a "Data Start Cell" from another sheet in my Excell workbook other than sheet1. I tried typing "Sheet2![cell_no]", but this is not a valid entry. Is there any way to accomplish this or am I stuck picking a cell on sheet1 of my workbook? It's not a big deal if I'm not able to select a cell from another sheet, but it would be nice simply for organization.
2. Does anyone know of a good resource that would provide a more thorough description of Inventor classes and objects for vba? The help function is fine for finding out what classes and objects actually exist and the sample code examples give a little more insight, but it would be helpful if there were a resource that provided a little better description of object functionality. I could get by with the sample code and help, but it would certainly help to have an extra resource.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The best resource for Inventor programming is the Autodesk Developer network... But you do have to pay to join!
Check out there site here, there is some free stuff to whet your appatit:
You can download the developer tools MSI for free - which includes a handy PDF map of the Inventor API object model.
(P.S. someone else will have to answer your excel question!)
