Q - question

Can I link drawing numbers to Excel and open them from the Excel document?

A - answer See the sample Excel sheet at www.cadstudio.cz/dl/Excel-Acad.xls (please, change the function name in the third column to match your Excel language version - e.g. '=Hyperlink') where you can include your drawing and project names.

Please note you can use also '//server/share' UNC names and 'http://' or 'ftp://' URL addresses as project roots)

You can also use a more advanced approach with a simple document management system like iPROJECT (see www.cadstudio.cz/iprojectuk).
