We are building an interactive drawing paper size changer through Forms from VBA.

Is it possible select our own standard xml file (KK_STANDARD.xml). In this xml file we have the non-standard paper sizes.

We changed few comments in our macro as shown below but unfortunately unable to read our standard file.

###############################
Set drawingDocument1 = CATIA.ActiveDocument
Set drawingSheets1 = drawingDocument1.Sheets
Set drawingSheet1 = drawingSheets1.Item(1)

CATIA.ActiveDocument.Standard = KK_STANDARD
drawingSheet1.PaperSize = R0

############################

Please let me know how to get our own standard xml file & paper size through macros.

For change the dimension of the sheet in non-standard, I've done a copy of the .xml file on my desktop and I change the dimension manually.
