CATIA Macro - how to retrieve information from a feature in a CATPart

(OP)
Hi everyone,

I'm looking to make a macro to retieve information from a CATPArt and export it to Excel.
Basically what the Technological results does but properly.
I need to retrieve from a CATPart the Hole features:
Ref
X origin (according to the CATPart axis system)
Y origin (according to the CATPart axis system)
Y origin (according to the CATPart axis system)
Diameter
depth
if it's counterbored, countersunk or counterdrilled i need to get the 2nd diameter and 2nd depth.
I got the "visual bit" done, ie, the table is set up but i don't know how to read and export the above from any feature in a CATPart.
Any help will be greatly appreciated
