I'm trying to extract text from a .dwg file and importing it into excel. I do not have autrocad.
Is this even possible? Are there any other ways of taking a table from a .dwg file and importing it into excel?
Any help would be much appreciated.
Not really: see in AutoCAD you have three types of "text": single line (as the name implies, each line is unique), Mtext (paragraph style) and attributes (which can be one of the other). The viewer does not have the tools to try and grab all the variations to export, or to let you copy/paste, more than one of these at a time (and no ability to convert them like AutoCAD).
