How to add layer description in AutoLISP?

A - answer You can modify layer descriptions (comments) with VisualLISP.

First make sure the COM support is loaded:

(vl-load-com)
Then use the following code (example) to add/change the description for the layer named "Lay1":
(vla-put-description (vlax-ename->vla-object (tblobjname "LAYER" "Lay1")) "My description for Lay1")
You can use this code in your own LISP routines, scripts or menu macros.
