Need Text extract to Excel

    Posted: 12.Mar.2018 at 20:42

Hello All,

 

I have searched everywhere for a solution to my problem. I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Here's my dilemma:

I need a way to extract text from my drawing (Acad 2018) and put it in Excel.

 

(I would like the text to be in somewhat an order as I pick it or window around it. )

 

I had IT guys download the APP "TEXTTOEXCEL."

 

For some strange reason, I could not get this APP to work. I consistently got "Unknown Command".

I contacted the writer of the APP, he sent me a new .vlx to download and re-load into AutoCAD.

I did that, and now I get an error "This routine is only available for ***** Office".

 

In the meantime, I've downloaded several other text-to-excel LISP routines, thinking that should work.

Each and every one of them, I get an error, unknown command, nil....etc......

 

I use AutoCAD Electrical 2018, but I only utilize the 2D Drafting & Annotation.

I know and understand LISP routines to get by. I know how to load them, modify on a small level and use them.

But I cannot understand why I cannot get ANY of these things to work on my AutoCAD.

The IT department here doesn't know AutoCAD at all. All they understand to do is to install it, but customization is not on their list of thing to know.

 

I really need something to work, due to my bosses are counting on me to find something.

Any suggestions????

Have you looked at CAD Studio DwgText (trial version) found here at the CADforum?
