    Question Linking MTEXT to a data source table?

    Goodday

    I am attempting to link fields in MTEXT to a table that I have attached and connected to in the Data Sources Workspace. How do you set or link a field in the mtext to a cell in the tables? I have got a far as getting the tables with their names in the workspace but I can't make the text link.

    Thanks for any help

    Default Re: Linking MTEXT to a data source table?

    I would like to insert text or a block with a defined attribute that has a field that recognizes a record in an linked table from Microsoft excel spreadsheet. Then the remaining fields will be extracted from the linked table or Microsoft excel spreadsheet.

    civil example

    XLS RECORD

    NAME RIM ELEV INV: ELEV
    CBMH1 906.0 902.3

    structure name CBMH1 WILL BE REFEREFERD IN A BLOCK OR MTEXT AND IT WILL APPEAR BY BRING IN THE STRUCTURE NAME, RIM ELEV AND INV ELEV.

    CBMH1
    RIM ELEV: 906.0
    INV ELEV: 902.3

    I HOPE THIS MAKES SENSE
