    Default Remove Data Extractions

    Okay here's my latest "weird one"

    I have a drawing that I did a Data Extraction to. I created a table in the drawing and a linked XLS file.

    We no longer need the extraction. So, I delete the table. But the Data Extraction.dxe still shows up in the External Reference Manager.

    How can I delete these "links" if they don't show up anywhere except in the External Reference Manager?

    Any ideas?

    There are no explanations on Help on how to remove it. And it says on Xref Manager that "Data Link selected: Cannot reload, detach or bind". Also, if you go to DATALINK manager there are option there to delete but if you click on that it prompts a warning that it is in use. I am not sure but AFAIK there are no available options aside from that for removing or detaching this kind of reference.

    Yeah that's my problem. I tried all of those avenues to no avail.

    Normally I would just say screw it BUT anytime I run Publish or E-Transmit it looks for the files that are not there and throws an error that I can usually click through but it's a pain.

    If my client opens the E-Transmit files and sees the errors they call looking for the missing files

    Try typing the command DATALINK and then right click on the table/legend etc. that you want to remove. Select delete. This should remove it from your file.

    A dcl file contains the definitions of the user interface elements so that a lisp routine can have text boxes, radio buttons and all the other pretty things we've become used to instead of being just a command line operation.

    Just a warning ... my code can stuf things around if used improperly. I've tried disallowing things that shouldn't be done, but I might have missed something ... you can of course Undo, but if you've saved & closed ... well ...

    See the orininal post for usage of this routine: http://forums.augi.com/showthread.php?t=78139

    This solution worked for me. Thanks, LArchy!
