How to export AutoCAD tables to international CSV or TXT files?

A - answer By default, AutoCAD offers table export only to a comma-separated CSV file. The CADstudio TAB2XLS utility adds more commands with options for export of AutoCAD table objects (requires MS Excel).

The TAB2XLS command exports the selected table from your drawing directly to the Excel application, wher it creates a new sheet and saves it to the XLS format (single-click export).

The TAB2CSV command exports a drawing table to a text file in the CSV format (comma separated values) in the international format - depending on your Windows locale settings (in many European countries this means using semicolons as value separators and decimal commas instead of points). The CSV file is created in the drawing's folder.

The TAB2TXT command exports data of the selected table to a tab-delimited text file.

You can download the TAB2XLS utility from
