The command you are looking for I believe is:


dim oDoc as DrawingDocument

Set oDoc = ThisApplication.ActiveDocument 'provided your active document is an .idw

Call oDoc.Sheets(1).DrawingViews(1).ReferencedDocumentDescriptor.ReferencedFileDescriptor.ReplaceReference("C:\Path\Part.ipt") 'set the sheet number to the page and the drawing view number to the base view (typically 1)
