XREF the title block is the way to go. As a matter of fact, you should have your architect put their basic building plan on a layer called Base and XREF that in your drawing as well. Every time the architect moves a wall or something, and as long as you have his updated drawing file, the changes will show up on your drawings. Vince Yu Pickard Architects ---------- From: John C. Jones [SMTP:jcjones(--nospam--at)pell.net] Sent: Thursday, February 25, 1999 5:49 AM To: seaint(--nospam--at)seaint.org Subject: ACAD Attribute ? Say you're fixing to send out a final set with 20 or 30 drawings and the architect calls and wants to change the date on the title block from 2-25-99 to 2-26-99. It's a pain to manually make this change. Previously, Mark Middlebrook and others have posted script and batch files to automate different tasks. One that comes to mind is a file to change all drawings in a particular subdirectory from r14 to r13. What I would like to be able to do is the following: 1. Have a script open a file. 2. select a particular block to edit the attributes (ddatte) 3. change value of a particular attribute 4. save changes 5. continue to next dwg file. The problems that I am running into is how to do you select the block with the attributes without manually picking it (the block will always be called 'tb') Then how do change a particular attribute at the command line. Any help would be wonderful. Thanks, John Jones, PE Pell City, AL jcjones(--nospam--at)pell.net <<File: John C. Jones (E-mail).vcf>>
