A nested block is usually not recommended as it "hides" attributes. How they are created is typically by making a block in a drawing, inserting the drawing as a block into another drawing. Because you have already created a block in the drawing being inserted as a block you will have nested blocks.
The only time I use nested blocks is when I DO NOT want the attributes to be accessible. That is usually related to when I have multiple identical blocks but only want one block to feed information to my reports. Especially useful when presenting mutiple views of a 2D block like an enclosure where each view has pre-defined catalog information.
I'm not completely sure what you mean here. The file APRILS_TEST.txt semms to be a *.WDL-file (that sets the decription labels for the project), and it has nothing to do with the WD_TB attribute... well.. unless your problem shows up when running title block setup?
Ok, I am completely confused! I thought I the text file was my WD_TB. When I ran the setup the first time, it kept saying my attribute was missing when I ran the update. But when I do the set up again, I go in order, and the same thing happens where it is backwards. I apologize for so much confusion! But I do appreciate your time and help
Where does that text file come into play?
That text file you posted is the descriptors for the various lines in the Project Description Dialog box. This information will replace Line 1 with Job NO, Line 2 with Cust, etc. It need to be renamed to default_wdtitle.wdl to work properly.
Here is a wiki that explains how to set it up: http://wikihelp.autodesk.com/AutoCAD_Electrical/en
I read through that very helpful link, followed it to a 'T' and my titleblock is still going backwards. The order that I clicked on each attribute, is backwards. If I look at the WD_TB it lists the attributes in the correct order.I also redid my txt file as per your instruction. Thank you very much for your help!
I think I know what you mean now.. You mean the order the attributes appear in, when you double-click the title block, right?
In this case, use the BATTMAN command in AutoCAD. Select your title block (in the DWT-file of course), and use the Move Up/Down buttons to move the attributes to whatever order you want them to be in.
