Batch Replace Blocks

Hi All,

We've recently converted all our microstation drawings to autocad now that the company has decided to go with one cad program company wide.


One of the issues we are having after getting the drawings back from the this co. converting them is the cells to blocks convertion inside the drawing.


when we open a drawing and see a "Fuse" block for instance and if it a has multiple inserts, it named them:



Fuse_2 etc....


is there a lisp routine or some command that would replace the "Fuse_*" blocks with "Fuse"

I've been searching the forums and know about the express tool Replace Block but need to be able to automate somehow.

I thought about trying to rename each of the "Fuse_*" but of course it won't let you rename to a block name that already exists...thanks in advance for any help!!

GO Texans!!!
