Excel 2007 sp3 (32bit)
Civil 3d 2012
I have some data in the form of
point# | X | Y | Desc_1 | Desc_2 | Desc_3 |....... ect
I would like to make an excel table that i can create multiple points from and make that table dynamic, ie if i edit the table the points will change.
I would be labeling the points according to the different desc_# in multiple drawings
Is there any way to do this? I have messed with creating a user defined property classification and creating a new point file format, but i want that point file I imported to be dynamic, and if I change values the values will change in all my drawings.
I attached the data I am attemting to link to.
Thank you in advance
Try the DATALINK command.

There is no way that I'm aware of to create points in the drawing that are dynamically linked to an external file. Perhaps with some programming it could be accomplished. It shouldn't be too hard to simply reimport the points as long as the point numbers don't change. When prompted that an existing point is in the drawing, use the "merge" option.
It is possible to link an import event in a Survey database to a csv file. You can then re-run the import event to update the database and drawing.
