Ok here's the silly question of the day.
Is there a way to extract attribute data from a drawing without opening the drawing first?
I was updating a bunch of reference drawing tables on a project this morning and thought it would be great if I could just select the drawing file (we always use part of the file name as the drawing number) and then extract the title attribute data from the drawing.
I know I can do this by opening the or inserting the reference drawing but it would be much slicker if I did not have to "open" the reference drawing to get at the title data.
I'm open to suggestions, or just plain old "thats the stoopidist idea ever"
