    It would help if you posted the code you already have. Don't forget to enclose it in code tags. Use the Go Advanced button and the # button.

    Here is my code
    public static List<string> GetAllFormats () // Получает все примененные форматы для подсчета их количества
                   Document doc = Application.DocumentManager.MdiActiveDocument;
                   Editor ed = doc.Editor;
                   Database db = doc.Database;
                   List<string> listOfFormatsInDrawing = new List<string>();
                   using ( Transaction tr = doc.TransactionManager.StartTransaction() )
                        BlockTable bt = tr.GetObject(db.BlockTableId, OpenMode.ForRead) as BlockTable;
                        if ( bt.Has("MainTitle") )
                             foreach ( ObjectId btrId in bt )//bt набор btrRecord то есть по своей сути уже коллекция!
                                  BlockTableRecord btr = tr.GetObject(btrId, OpenMode.ForRead) as BlockTableRecord;
                                  if ( btr.Name.Contains("Title"))
                                       ObjectIdCollection brIdCollection = btr.GetBlockReferenceIds(false, true);// собрать все Id от BlockReference из BlockTableRecord в коллекцию
                                       foreach ( ObjectId brId in brIdCollection )
                                            BlockReference br = tr.GetObject(brId, OpenMode.ForRead) as BlockReference;// получить все BlockReference
                                            AttributeCollection attrIdCollection = br.AttributeCollection;// собрать все Id от атрибутов из BlockTableRecord в коллекцию
                                            foreach ( ObjectId idAttRef in attrIdCollection )
                                                 AttributeReference att = tr.GetObject(idAttRef, OpenMode.ForRead) as AttributeReference;
                                                 if ( att.Tag=="Format" )
                   return listOfFormatsInDrawing;
              public static void CreateFormatList ()//Создает список всех примененных в чертеже форматов
                   Document acDoc = Application.DocumentManager.MdiActiveDocument;
                   Database acCurDb = acDoc.Database;
                   List<string> formatInCurrentDrawing =GetAllFormats();
                   string resultString= string.Join("| ", formatInCurrentDrawing);
                   // Start a transaction
                   using ( Transaction acTrans = acCurDb.TransactionManager.StartTransaction() )
                        // Open the Block table for read
                        BlockTable acBlkTbl = acTrans.GetObject(acCurDb.BlockTableId, OpenMode.ForRead) as BlockTable;
                        BlockTableRecord acBlkTblRec = acTrans.GetObject(acBlkTbl[ BlockTableRecord.PaperSpace ], OpenMode.ForWrite) as BlockTableRecord;
                        // Create a multiline text object
                        using ( MText listOfFormats = new MText() )
                             listOfFormats.Location=new Point3d(-185, -15, 0);
                             listOfFormats.Contents=$"This drawing contains {resultString}";
                             acTrans.AddNewlyCreatedDBObject(listOfFormats, true);
