It sounds like you would need an attributed block with two or more attributes, one for the northing, one for eastings and probably one for the description. Then you'd need a lisp routine to insert this block and include the northings/eastings of the selected point. Many variables would need to be known so others can help you out (ie units, font size, text style, etc, etc.)

An example of what i want to do is:







N.3000'-3"
E.2500'-0"
EL.12'-9-5/8"







I want to place this typr of coordinate at any spot on the drawing. is there a command that can be invoked?

I'm trying to do the same thing with as-buit drawings.  I want each point to show those three attributes, which have been shot in with surveying equipment.  I could not use the block given, and it seemed to be for labeling only.
