Import IGES or STEP file into CATIA V6 with VBA

Trying to find a way to programmatically import an IGES or STEP file into V6 with a VBA script. I tried recording a macro and performing the step manually but language for the action isn't recorded in the macro.

Anyone know how to do this?

Thanks,

Geoff

Why not using the Utility command?

Fernando,

Thanks for the response. I can import a file by hand through the V6 interface. I'm trying to automate the process through VBA to make the operation part of a larger program. I can't figure out the VBA commands though. I tried doing a macro record on running the step import through the utility menu but no commands were recorded.
