RangeSel - select blocks by the range of their attribute values

A - answer Using the RangeSel utility, you can bulk select block references whose attributes take integer values in a specified range (from-to), e.g. room numbers 112 to 137.

You can download the LISP utility RangeSel from Download, load it into your AutoCAD with APPLOAD and run it by typing the RANGESEL command.

Pick a sample of the attribute, by which you want to select (or specify it by name) and enter the range of searched values. The application selects all blocks that match the criterion.
