Does anyone know how to start Project Explorer but point to a specific file, every time you start it. I want to use PE with the Selected file option. I have a common project structure which contains a folder called data and inside this there is a common file called linkset.dgn.
What I want is to be able to press File > PE and for the icon to cal up a keyin in to then load up the projects linkset file i.e. maybe use MS_DEF/data.
I know the keying to launch PE, but I cannot find where to append the file name.
I know I can use the DGNLIB option, but this limits the usage of PE to the end user.
Can you use the configuration variable that autoloads VBA's? - MS_VBAAUTOLOADPROJECTS

Thanks, but I need to open a specific file within a project and set the PE option to Selected file. I dont think this VAR would work
If you don't mind me asking, what kind of workflow would need this?
basically, I want to control the folders structure within Project Explorer but allow the users the ability to populate the folder and create new folder new links, new searches etc.
if you use the dgnlib option, these options are greyed out. So as work around I want to hard code the PE open option to select a selected linkset. This will need to be based on a linkset within the project folder structure and controled via a VAR.
problem is will VBA fnd such a file?
