We have been extracting x,y,z co-ordinates for setting out purposes in building construction for some time now without any problems using the original attribute extraction ATE. Accurate values are returned from both blocks inserted directly into the file and also blocks nested within Xref's.
The original ATTEXT process works perfectly well still in AutoCAD2007, however not if you used the enhanced attribute extraction around since 2005?
When the enhanced extraction EATTEXT is used in the World UCS points for blocks directly inserted into the file are correctly returned, whilst co-ordinates for blocks nested within Xref's the values returned are relative to the insertion point of the Xref and NOT relative to the host file.
Am I missing something? Or is this an situation which cannot worked around?
Many thanks in advance for any advice
