I am in the process of indexing a group of approx 60,000 AutoCAD drawings with AutoCAD 2005. To my advantage, all of these drawings use a consistent attributed title block with the drawing number, description and such. There are approx 30 drawings per folder. I can't come up with an efficient method of getting the attribute data to my excel spread sheet. Currently I am Copy-Paste from AutoCAD to Excel. I have created a template to export the attribute data to a text file, but I cannot seem to append the data, it wants to overwrite the output file. I have tried the attribute export tool, but it gives me too much information.
Currently I use a directory printer that gives me the filename and path witch will be used to provide a hyper link once the data is imported into my access database. All I really need is to get the drawing description from the attributed title block into Excel or Access.
