I have successfully used Solid Edge to save a list of draft files on an Excel spreadsheet as PDF. I also have non-SolidEdge files in the vault that I would like to copy out as unmanaged. I am trying to use the ExportDocumentsFromServer method of the RevisionManager.Insight object. Since I am new to this, I need some guidance on how to connect to Revision Manager. I am running ST3, Windows 7 and Excel 2010, and using VBA. One other issue is that I am able to see the library as expected in the object browser, but when I start typing in the code, it's as if I am using another library, because the list of methods coming up after I type "." is very different! What am I doing wrong? Am I getting tripped up by ActiveX vs COM vs .NET?
Edit #1: Successfully built a quick VB.NET application to move the files. All I need is a little help on how to connect to Insight when in Excel using VBA. Once I get past that, I should be able to take it from there.
Dim objApplication As RevisionManager.Application
Dim objInsight As RevisionManager.Insight
Dim aListOfDocumentsToExport(1) As Object
Dim ExportToLocation As String
Dim SetDocToReadOnly As Boolean
Dim OverWriteOption As Boolean
' Start Revision Manager.
objApplication = New RevisionManager.Application '<- how to do this in VBA?
