AutoCAD Table - Link Text With Equation


Recommended Posts



I have created a table within AutoCAD. I have written some words in cell "A1", I would like to display the same words in another cell using an equation "=A1".

When I type the "=A1" equation the cell displays "####"

Is there anyway to make this work? possibly using fields?

The table row-columns are a little bit different I have a table


1st line heading 1 row only 0!

2nd line 2 Columns heading 1!

3rd+ 2 columns of data 2!


so try =A2 worked for me, this is third row 1st column.

The #### usually means that there is data in the cell but it cant be displayed because of the cell formatting. Most of time the cell is to small, sometimes the data is in a form the cell is not formatted for, so if you have text in the cell but it's formatted for numbers then you will get either the #### displayed in the cell or an error message. AutoCAD stays pretty true to how Excel works when it comes to formulating a table but there are some differences.

AFAIK you can't combine cells values and a test string in ACAD Tables so that's one difference I can see.
