Lisp to change Plot Style Table

Is it possible to create a lisp that would change the plot style table?  I don't know of any variable to type to change that.  We convert drawings from Solidworks to AutoCad and use the basic monochrome plot style.  I'd like to easily change that since the act of doing that is repeated many times.

This is what is needed to determine the current plotstyle using vlisp.  Change the get to a put and add the name just before the last parenthesis in quotes.

(vla-get-stylesheet(vla-item(vla-get-layouts(vla-get-activedocument(vlax-get-acad-object)))(getvar "ctab")))
