Keep It Inside AutoCAD: Data Extraction Direct to AutoCAD Tables
(GD401-1P) originally presented 12/5/2008 at Autodesk University 2008
as part of the AutoCAD PowerTrack

Do you need to create room finish schedules, parts lists, and bills of materials? For years, AutoCAD users have been creating tables for use as parts lists, bills of materials, schedules, and so on, by either laboriously creating them manually or extracting attribute data to an external file and then importing it back into AutoCAD. But this is no longer necessary. Learn how to use new tools in AutoCAD to extract attribute data directly to an AutoCAD table, and update those tables automatically when changes occur. You'll also learn how to perform calculations on table data directly within AutoCAD and how to link AutoCAD and Excel data into a single table that can be updated automatically. Now you can create accurate, easy-to-update data, saving you time and money.
