Creating UDL files

110 Views, 2 Replies

I'm developing a VBA application using CAO. The only way I can create a
working UDL file has been via AutoCAD's dbconnect command. Although the UDL
files seem like simple text, they are not. I have even attempted creating
code which mimics the AutoCAD's UDL file format but they still do not
function

Is there a way to create UDL files programmatically?

If you have installed MDAC their are a couple of registry files that need to
be merged that will add this ability in Windows Explorer popup menu under
the 'New' option. This will allow you to create them without acad
(essentially acad just calls the same component)

I have seen a published spec for UDL files but I do not recall the exact
location. Somewhere on msdn.microsoft.com should have. FWIW: the file spec
is microsofts not autodesks
