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.
