Hi, It's my first post in this forum, I hope this is the right place to post my question. Im using Autocad Map 2011 and I have a DWG file with hundreds of data tables (2x2) spread all over a map. All table content is in text, and they have a cell with an ID (manually inserted in autocad - in the first top/left cell) My goal is to link the data table contents to an excel spreadsheet, so that i can update table values from excel. Can someone help me? Attached its a dwg file to get the idea. Drawing1.dwg
I have a very simple table in excel that I have tried to copy and paste special into a drawing but every time I try this I get an unreferenced message. I know the file is in the correct location but I can't figure out what I have done to cause it to be unreferenced (it appears in the Xref dialog as unreferenced). I am pasting it as a link & Autocad entities and when I go to insert it into my drawing it doesn't seem to do anything. I did this a couple of weeks ago with another table and it worked fine. Please help, it is driving me crazy. Thanks Sooz.
