    Default list all dwg and dxf files open from excel

    Hello,

    Looking for a VBA macro to list the names of all dwg and dxf files open.
    That might need to include several instances of the AutoCAD applications, not just only one

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Katto

    Hi,
    If I'm understanding well you have several instances of AUtocad opened ?
    But if I have opened several drawing or dxf the Autocad instance it's always the same, but windows are several, and with code showed some post age you will have all opened windows name.

    So I don't understood well your question.

    It seems like you are referring to AutoCAD and its behavior with multiple drawings (DWG or DXF files) open within the same AutoCAD instance. AutoCAD indeed works in a way where you typically have one instance of the AutoCAD software running, and within that instance, you can have multiple drawings open in separate windows or tabs.

    Each open drawing represents a separate file but operates within the same AutoCAD instance. Therefore, you may see multiple windows or tabs, each containing a different drawing, but they are all part of the same AutoCAD instance.

    In your code, when you interact with AutoCAD, you may be able to identify and work with individual drawings or their windows within the same AutoCAD instance. This allows you to perform operations of on each drawing separately while having them all within one AutoCAD session.
