Is ther a way to change sttioning text incrementally? For example, I have text (0+00) spaced every 100 ft. along the bottom of a profile grid. I want to be able to pick the first, have it change to 1+00, then the second, have it changed to 2+00, etc. I have looked for a lisp routine online, but have not found one. I am not very good at creating them myself, so can anyone help?

I am not sure I understand what you mean. I want to to pick text (0+00) already placed so that when I am finished, they read as follows:
0+00 1+00 2+00 3+00 ..... and so on, along the bottom of my profile grid. I have some routines that will increment changes, but they only produce the same result for each text (1+00 1+00 1+00), when I want the second and third and so on picks to change by 100 more then the last.
paste then type Next_Station in command line
(defun C:Next_Station (/ num cent)
(setq num (atoi (substr (vla-get-textstring (vlax-ename->vla-object (car (entsel "\nSelect Beginning Station: ")))) 1 1)))
(prompt "\nSelect Next Station: ")
(while (setq cent (vlax-ename->vla-object (car (entsel))))
(setq num (1+ num))
(vla-put-textstring cent (strcat (itoa num) (substr (vla-get-textstring cent) 2)))
(defun C:Next (/ Start TxtObject strt Next) (vl-load-com) (cond ((and (setq Start (car (entsel "\nSelect Beginning Station: "))) (eq (vla-get-ObjectName (setq TxtObject (vlax-ename->vla-object Start))) "AcDbText") (setq num (vla-get-textstring TxtObject)) (setq strt (itoa (+ (atoi (vl-string-subst "" "+" num)) 100))) (not (prompt "\nSelect Next Station: ")) (while (setq Next (car (entsel))) (and (eq (vla-get-ObjectName (setq TxtObject (vlax-ename->vla-object Next))) "AcDbText") (not (vla-put-textstring TxtObject (strcat (substr strt 1 (- (strlen strt) 2)) "+" (substr strt (1+ (- (strlen strt) 2)))))) (setq strt (itoa (+ (atoi strt) 100))) ) ) ) ) )(princ) )
