I work for a company that is trying to convert 15,000 files from one format to another. I have written a script file that will do the conversion process. The problem I have is that I have the file names listed in an Excel file and in the script I created, I need to have the file name appear twice (once to indicate the file name to import and once to indicate the name of the newly created file). So, I am wondering if there is a script command that I could use that would automatically read the Excel file and insert the file names automatically. Or if you have another idea, at this point, I am willing to entertain almost any suggestion.

If the name is related to the file name you could use lisp to retrieve the
file name, strip the extension and then use that for saving the file. The
easiest way would be to copy your script into a batch program and use this
to batch process the files.
If the files names are different you could use Excel to create the script.
You would use formulas to create the routine, copy/paste this into Notepad
and save it with the .scr extension. Start AutoCAD and set SDI to 1 then
start the AutoCAD script command and call up your script routine. This can
be useful for filling in title blocks when you have client numbers and names
For your entire batch processing needs
