Hi There



How can I change the "Part Number" Field in Thousands of .ipt files.

Part Number Field = Filename

Used the same "Mother.ipt" to create all files, but to change 8000 files
manually

I´snt that funny.



Thanks in Advance

VBA would do it easily. Check out the sample in the SDK directory under
Iventor 6 and the Programming help. Also check out the
autodesk.inventor.customization. Look in the FAQ posted yesterday for the
link.

Hi Kathy

Thanks, but I was looking for a more automatic
kind of feature.
Like: Point on a folder, and all .ipt in all subfolders will obtain "Part Number" as filename.ipt

Try using the Design assistant, select all the files to change by holding down the shift or control key. Then right mouse click, pick Properties and change the field, this will update all the selected files.

The only problem is that he wants each file to have
a different entry in that property.

HI
Yes... You are right Kathy, thats the problem.
You know that the "Part number" field (the first time the part is saved) obtain the filename.
But if you have 8000 parts with the same filename, written
in that "Part number" field, your lost.

Dont know how to do ?.

Thanks a lot for all your answers.

The VBA program will do the job without opening
everyfile.  It will take less time then doing it manually.
