    Hi,

    I am working on a project which have around 500 drawing. Presently, Project Number has got changed from 75001 to 85001 . So, I have to change project number from 75001 to 85001 of all the 500 drawings. Can you provide a VBA code to change it in the title block ?

    All 500 drawings have a TEXT (or MTEXT) object in them that needs changed?
    Is the object in the exact same location in each drawing?

    Consider using Sheet Set Manager next time to avoid this.

    Using Aeccoreconsole is the way to go. Much faster than opening each dwg. You can batch directories. But answer Rkmcswain question 1st, does the dwgs have multi layouts, title block, model paper so many questions.

    Hello, I used the "BFIND" lisp from lee Mac and it works well, but my concern is that I have a lot of texts to replace, of course the lisp does that but it does it text by text, and I have a list of 17000 texts to replace by searching for the value of the old text and replacing it with the new text in the files select "* .dwg" without opening them, how to add the list without entering one by one, thank you

    I'm not sure what you are asking for. Do you mean that you want to add to the list of words to search for? The LOAD and SAVE buttons allow you to save the word list to a text file. You can then edit it in Notepad and LOAD it.

    You really have not defined the task 500 dwgs 17000 changes if that means your title block has 1 change to be made in each title like say company name it maybe faster to insert an amended block, it will ask do you want to redfine block ? Then Attsync all done, have done this where address was changed different logo etc etc very simple.

    Two days have gone past if this requirement would be all done by now.

    Happy to provide some tips making 500 dwg names real quick old fashioned DOS then Word to make script.
