In the project below all sheets has "Status: File is missing" because the files where moved to a new location.

This is easily fixed using Sheet Set Manager Path Edit.

There will come up two prompts when the command is run:
Command: Enter the file path prefix to replace (Example: R:\):
Command: Enter the new file path prefix (Example: C:\):

The result of the run will be prompted to the command line.
Example: when changed from R:\Documents\AutoCAD Sheet Sets to R:\ACME Project
Command: Enter the file path prefix to replace (Example: R:\): R:\Documents\AutoCAD Sheet Sets
Command: Enter the new file path prefix (Example: C:\): R:\ACME Project
Changed Sheet: 1 - Sheet List from 'R:\Documents\AutoCAD Sheet Sets\1 Sheet List.dwg' to 'R:\ACME Project\1 SHEET LIST.DWG'
Changed Sheet: 2 - Main Plan from 'R:\Documents\AutoCAD Sheet Sets\2 Main Plan.dwg' to 'R:\ACME Project\2 MAIN PLAN.DWG'
Changed Sheet: 3 - Plan 1 to 50 South from 'R:\Documents\AutoCAD Sheet Sets\3 Plan 1 to 50 South' to 'R:\ACME Project\3 Plan 1 to 50 South'
Changed Sheet: 4 - Plan 1 to 50 North from 'R:\Documents\AutoCAD Sheet Sets\4 Plan 1 to 50 North' to 'R:\ACME Project\4 Plan 1 to 50 North'
Changed Sheet: 5 - Plan 1 to 50 West from 'R:\Documents\AutoCAD Sheet Sets\5 Plan 1 to 50 West' to 'R:\ACME Project\ Plan 1 to 50 West'
Changed Sheet: 6 - Plan 1 to 50 East from 'R:\Documents\AutoCAD Sheet Sets\6 Plan 1 to 50 East' to 'R:\ACME Project\6 Plan 1 to 50 East'

And here is the result. All layouts are found.

-vbaload and -vbarun can be used to create a macro to call the command.

If the new path being specified is not found AutoCAD cannot set the path. If you need to change the paths before the new folders are created you need to use SSMPropEditor.

Contact us for any questions, wishes or comments. A lot more can be done to automate the work with Sheet Set Manager, DST files and AutoCAD products in general. Would you like the Sheet name to math the layout name or match the Sheet title, some Sheet Custom Properties or something else? Would you like to match some Sheet Custom Properties from one Sheet to another?

See also the SSMPropEditor product for editing properties on multiple sheets.

If you want to create Sheet Sets and their properties in an automated manner take a look at our JTB Sheet Set Creator.
