Capturing Drawing Data
Read 2325 times

I'd like to have a drawing that just has a list of all the drawings in the project. A table seems to be a good bet or linking a spreadsheet.

Is there a way to access the Drawing Name as well as the summary information and place it in a database/table?

Any suggestions as to how to go?
I have 16.2 Pro

I would love to know if this could be done too.  Maybe at least the ability to print out the X-Ref Manager with the filenames, path, name and such.

Coaster Guy-

Either no one has a large project or they want to keep the secret.  ;) I've experimented with both tables and database. Still need the data. By the time I get done with patterns I envision 300 + sheets.

I think I am going to end up re-entering the data and linking an open office spreadsheet.

By the way - I've looked for an X-Ref Manager and cannot find a mention in the help document. Any help?

In V16 Help, it's referred to as an "External References Panel".

Thanks All,

I put in a support ticket and got a reply - they don't know of any way to get the information.
I'm just going to use a table and add relationship to my Title Block. Should work OK.
