Disable Equation Example (VBA)

This example shows how to disable an equation.

'-----------------------------------------------------------------
' Preconditions:
' 1. Open public_documents\tutorial\api\partequations.sldprt.
' 2. Open the Immediate window.
'
' Postconditions:
' 1. Disables an equation.
' 2. Examine the Immediate window.
'
' NOTE: Because the part is used elsewhere, do not save changes.
