Hi

I'm working on the same subject.

I managed to get parameters values from ProE to Excel, but I still can't work it the other way. Here is my code, may it help you...

_________________________________________________

Dim asynconn As New pfcls.CCpfcAsyncConnection

Dim conn As pfcls.IpfcAsyncConnection

Dim session As pfcls.IpfcBaseSession

Dim MyModel As IpfcModel

Dim mdlname

Dim Powner As pfcls.IpfcParameterOwner

Dim params As IpfcParameters

Dim param As IpfcBaseParameter

Dim paramValue As IpfcParamValue

Dim paramName As IpfcNamedModelItem

Dim NewDesignation As String

'Connexion

Set conn = asynconn.Connect("", "", ".", 5)

Set session = conn.session

Set MyModel = session.CurrentModel

'Display file name

mdlname = MyModel.Filename

Range("A1") = mdlname

Set Powner = MyModel

Set params = Powner.ListParams()

'Display parameters name, value and description

For i = 1 To (params.Count - 1)

Set param = params(i)

Set paramValue = param.Value

Set paramName = param

Cells(i, 2) = i

Cells(i, 3) = paramName.Name

If paramValue.discr = 0 Then 'If parameter is string

Cells(i, 4) = paramValue.StringValue

ElseIf paramValue.discr = 3 Then 'if parameter is real value

Cells(i, 4) = paramValue.DoubleValue

End If

Cells(i, 5) = params(i).Description

Next i

'Modify parameter named DESIGNATION

For i = 1 To (params.Count - 1)

Set param = params(i)

Set paramValue = param.Value

Set paramName = param

If paramName.Name = "DESIGNATION" And paramValue.discr = 0 Then

NewDesignation = InputBox("Changer la désignation:")

'Here I miss the right code to update the parameter in ProE.....sorry

End If

Next i

'Déconnexion

conn.Disconnect (2)

Tnx for you reply, this is really old post, forgot about it

I found the way to put excel data into pro/E

here is part of the code you need

Dim bpro As IpfcBaseParameter

This lines assign value from excel and converts it to double (if you use VB instead of VBA use CType to convert to double)

vrijednost = Range("C48").Value

Set Value = CParamvalue.CreateDoubleParamValue(vrijednost)

This lines select parameter A in pro/E model and give it value from Excel

Set bpro = paraOwner.GetParam("A")

bpro.Value = Value

hope it helps

cAC = New CCpfcAsyncConnection

asyncConnection = cAC.Start("D:\Program Files\proeWildfire 4.0\bin\proe.exe" + " -g:no_graphics -i:rpc_input", ".")

session = asyncConnection.Session

asyncConnection.Session.ChangeDirectory("D:\Test_Proe")

Dim descModel As IpfcModelDescriptor

Dim model As IpfcModel

descModel = (New CCpfcModelDescriptor).Create(EpfcModelType.EpfcMDL_PART, "D:\ProEExample\test.prt", Nothing)

model = session.RetrieveModel(descModel)

Catch ex As Exception

MsgBox(ex.Message.ToString + Chr(13) + ex.StackTrace.ToString)

Finally

If Not asyncConnection Is Nothing AndAlso asyncConnection.IsRunning Then

asyncConnection.End()

End If
