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,
