    Default How to determine what files an x-ref is referenced into?

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Is there an easy way to check what drawing files a particular x-ref is referenced into, without going through a series of drawing files which I think the x-ref may be referenced into ?

    In other words, is it possible somehow to select the x-ref file, and check which other drawing files it is then referenced into ?

    Please bear in mind, that variable XREFCTL is set to a value of 0, and therefore has not been creating log files.

    Thanks in advance, for any help or information.

    Yes, within reason...
    I have a routine that will find it files that contain the xref, but there is risk that a few may be missed, although I have never had problems with it.

    Ask nicely and I might try and dig out the script for you.

    OK. I will see what I can find, it is quite old so may take some time, but I will get back to you as soon as I find it.

    Yeah, I'm certain the dwg was being used as an xref elsewhere.

    Still looking through, have found an exe that I know contains it along with a few others, but can not find the script.
    Will check through all my ext hard drives when back in the office tomorrow, must have it somewhere, if not then I will see if I can decompile the exe.

    Sorry for the delay.
