Thread: Automating dataextraction so extracted data refer to the current drawing only

    Default Automating dataextraction template so extracted data refer to the current drawing always


    I'm trying to automate the dataextraction process. I have created a .dxe template file using a drawing. I saved the dxe template to a readable folder so I can use it by name. I've created a palette tool with the macro: ^C^C-dataextraction;template.dxe;

    The problem is when I use the tool with any other drawing than the one that created the template, I keep getting the same table inserted. How can I make the extraction to automatically read data from the current file I use the palette tool in?
