Script to add many Data Links without using the Data Link Manager


Recommended Posts


Is there a way to add datalinks without doing it manually using the Data Link Manager?


I need to insert a lot of data links to a CAD file and was wondering if there is a way to streamline the process.


Excel Setup:

In my Excel workbook, I have many worksheets and each worksheet have 2 "Named Range" to be data linked in CAD. Does anyone know how I can do this?


If I had to add the data link manually, the step would be:


1) Data Link Manager > Create a new Excel Data Link

2) Choose an Excel File

3) Set Path Type: "Relative Path"

4) Select Excel sheet to link to: "Worksheet Name"

5) Link to a named range: "Named Range"

6) Uncheck "Use Excel formatting"


Thanks so much!
