Custom property added to the file
Custom property added to the file

This VBA example demonstrates how to add the ApprovedBy property with the value of the name of current user to all sources using Document Manager API. Property will be added (or updated) for the file (general), all configurations and all cut-list items.

Specify the full path of the file in the FILE_PATH constant.

Const SW_DM_KEY As String = "Your License Key"

Const FILE_PATH As String = "C:\SampleModel.SLDPRT"
Const PRP_NAME As String = "ApprovedBy"
