Is there any way to select and attach a Geographical Coordinate System using VBA in Microstation. I would like to create a macro that can be used in batch processing to apply the Geographical Coordinate system to DGN's
The GeographicCoordinateSystem Object was added to the latest SelectSeries 3. Check the help file to make sure that this is available to your version. I would then use the ActiveModelReference.GetGCS method to get the current system and WriteGCS to add a system.

OK I do have the latest release. I will take a look at this more. At first glance it appeart to get the GCS that is already applied model. I was hoping to go to the GSC library and assign a GCS to the model.

You may want this method on the Application Object CreateGCSFromKeyName Then you use the WriteGCS method on the ActiveModelReference.

Sample VBA example, which Mark.Anderson is referring to.
Dim newGCS As GeographicCoordinateSystem
Set newGCS = Application.CreateGCSFromKeyName("UTM83-12")
ActiveModelReference.WriteGCS newGCS, True, False
