Is there any way to delete the microsoft excel spreadhseet out of a partfile without having to actually open that part file or the enitre assembly that may be under it.
You could write your own external NXOpen EXE to do so.
This EXE will run in a non-interactive NX session, so a running NX session is not needed.
You will have to change the assembly load options to load only the structure and not the components in your code of the EXE for the second recommendation.
