I'm trying to 're-use' text from a titleblock.attribute because I want to note down the old document number and the revision letter it had before re-issueing it at revision A.

Something in the line of these steps:
1) Read the Titleblock-text-Revision value > $OLDREV$
2) Update the Titleblock-text-revision value with A
3) Update the Titleblock-text-dwgderivedfrom value with $FILENAME$ REV $OLDREV$

Any thoughts?

Thanks. :)

I'm trying to accomplish a similar thing as Chris. This code from lee-mac doesn't work for me though. Any other suggestions by any chance?

Hi Chris,

This is something I've been thinking about implementing for quite some time. It would definitely require several steps...
1) Call a lisp (in batch) to generate (& append to) a CSV (or other editable text file), with extracted attribute data.
2) Ability to sort/edit the file (Excel?)
3) Apply any changes back into the DWG files.

I've found this workaround using very nice code from lee-mac, and seems that it might suit your needs for the time being. I haven't had a chance to test this...

Hopefully you can modify to suit your needs.
