I am new to NX and was asked to try and make a spreadsheet in which you can type a Tool number and all .prt files containing that tool within a particular file location will be listed. We utilize NX 7.5 and 9 until we can convert everything to 9. I was thinking of tying to add a button in excel that will contain code that will search the files while using a cell (containing the tool number) as the search criteria. Any assistance on this will be greatly appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
A sample vb program was provided in the Manufacturing forum :*)
thank you again
You're very welcome.
I put the note here so that folks in this forum know that this has been solved. Many programmers don't read the CAM forum.
Hello again, I have added a few things to the code and I was wondering if there is any way to make this an executable file so that I can run it without opening NX. My idea is to have a Refresh button in excel that will update the tool numbers by running the code. Any help is greatly appreciated.
You can run the journal from a command line. Start an NX Command Prompt window and enter run_journal -help.
Thank you again MardRief that helped very much. I was just asked to do the same thing as it is doing now but to only pull tool numbers that have operations attached to them. I have tried searching for them but have had no luck. Do you have any ideas? Thanks you

You want to check if a tool has children in the tool view, but I don't know how to do that.
Another idea would be to cycle the operations, and ask the tool number of each.
