    Default Link mtext to autocad table data

    I'm trying to link mtext to autocad table cell, such as when I update the mtext then the autcad table cell will be updated.
    Does anyone know how?

    You want the table data to update when the MText object data is changed? Use a field within the cell you wish to update. Use the object type field and point it toward the mtext object's content property.
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    Hi,
    It works, but with unwanted quotes in front of the data, ie my mtext is 234 but in the cell is \PXQL;234

    problem solved, my mtext have some format, when link to cell it shows the format infront of the numbers, exploded to text then it works.
