autocad and autocad lt

Recommended Posts

I am looking into creating a excel spreed sheet that will be used by our company. The excel spreadsheet will be used for getting data (revision status) from a list of selected drawings. In excel you will select the file location and then the list of drawings that you would like the data from. Autocad might need to be opened but can run in the background.

 

Now the main question once the code is completed in excel can it be used in Autocad 2013LT

 

If I am confusing people basic idea.

 

open excel file. run data extraction on selected cad files. sort data by drawing number.

autocad LT does not support lisp or VBA, so no, you would need the real version of autocad to do that

 

but if you had the real version of autocad, that would be a very simple program to write

How is the data stored in your drawing? is it attributes

You should be able to run a script from AutoCadLT and save data as CSV files, then open it in Excel. You need to workout how to extract the data depending on how it is stored (Table, attrubutes, plain text, etc.).
