Q - question

Overview of files referenced from an Inventor drawing.

A - answer To quickly display a list of files referenced from an Inventor drawing, you can use the following simple VBA macro. Insert the "RefList" macro into your Inventor VBA Editor (Tools > Options > VBA Editor) and run it with Alt+F8.

Sub RefList()  
Dim oDoc As Document  
Dim Refs As String  
Refs = ""  
Set oDoc = ThisApplication.ActiveDocument  
For i = 1 To oDoc.AllReferencedDocuments.Count  
Refs = Refs & oDoc.AllReferencedDocuments.Item(i).FullDocumentName & vbCrLf  
MsgBox Refs, vbInformation, "Reference list"  
End Sub
