Place all your drawings in a folder. Copy the code below to note pad and save in same folder as drawings. Place the block you want to insert in another folder. Launch one of the drawings the at command prompt type; (load "thenameoflispfile") see ;;********* below

(setq plist (vl-directory-files (getvar "dwgprefix") "*.dwg" 1))

(foreach ins1 plist
(setvar "lispinit" 0)
(command "open" ins1)
(command "insert" "c:\\bin\\ws001" "0,0" "" "" "");;***** "c:\\bin\\ws001" your block name with path
(command "save" ins1)
(setq plist nil)
