    Sorry Ed, I thought I had. Here it is. Really turned out to be simple.

    Code:
    (defun C:upd-shtm-block ( / #INS)
    
    (if (tblsearch "block" "dsbdshtm")
      (command "_.insert" "dsbdshtm=" nil)
    
    )
      (command "attsync" "n" "dsbdshtm")
    
    );defun upd-shtm-block
    Mind you, this is for a very specific block.

    Code:
    (command "_.insert" "dsbdshtm=" nil)
    This line gives me the following error:
    Code:
    "dsbdshtm.dwg": Can't find file in search path
    *Invalid*
    I'm not sure what that line is supposed to be doing, it looks like it's not doing anything.

    He stated that it was the name of a specific block. You would have to modify the code for your use. The main thing he was showing is the use of the attsync command.
