Hi all,


I am trying to extract data from a block for eg. area of a polyline (that had been made as a block) so that I can export it as an excel schedule. I have been unsuccessful so far. Whenever the data extraction window asked for what kind of information to be extracted, area is not one of them.


Another question is, I have information that had been worked out in excel and I want to attach this to the blocks that i have made in CAD. I have import the schedule into CAD and this comes in as a table. How do I then link the cells in the table to the block annotation so that when the excel schedule changes, the block annotation changes too?


Thank you!!! Would really appreciate some help!

Inside the block you can make an attribute,

at default, click the field button > choose object > select polyline > choose property > maybe change the additional format > place the attribute.

click CTRL+1 > select the placed attribute > set Invisible to "yes" > close block.


type "field" > choose object > select block > choose property > maybe change the additional format > place the attribute. This can also be done in an table and can be exported to excel


There may be a shorter way, but this is how i do it always.


I hope i helped you with your problem.
