A program called "Spanner" works great for excel spreadsheets. We purchased it at Mcneel and Assoc. out of Seattle. May be offered other locations.

Thanks for the info. I tried the demo but it will no link into an an attribute. We have over a 1000 phone extensions and I wanted to be able to attach the information from an excel spreadsheet and link it into an attribute for each of the extensions that are listed in each area on the drawing. Any Ideas?

Look at cadalog for a program called excellink. You have to pay for it but it doesn't cost much and will make your job much easier. It does exactly what you want. I used to be in telcom and I used it everyday.

You can try Excellink - see http://www.cadstudio.cz/excellink - a
dynamic link between XLS and DWG blocks.

if you have 2000i you won't be able to print them anyways, but if you have 2000 you'll be okay

sfricke,

I downloaded the demo Excellink 2000 but I need to know how to link the spreadsheet with the information into each of the blocks with attributes. Can you give me some instruction how you did it?

Thanks
James
