Point attributes.

I am working with an AutoCad file that is composed of many points. Each point is assigned different attributes. For example when I select a point and then open the properties toolbar there is a line that is labled "PIN" and in that line there is a series of numbers (for example 340-012-00-00-0012-00). Each point is assigned a different number under that "PIN" line. Is there a way for me to search by typing out one of those pin numbers and then being able to zoom to that appropriate point?

You should be able to use the command _FIND, type in the PIN, then Zoom To. It works that way in 2008, not sure about 2009.

You refer to these things as "points" that are "assigned different attributes". What exactly are these objects? (What does the properties window say they are?)

The property window says that they are "point"
In the property window it has 4 headings.

"GENERAL"
"3D VISUALIZATION"
"GEOMETRY"
"OD:smileytongue:P2_POINT"

Then under the last heading "OD:smileytongue:P2_POINT" there is a line that say PIN on the left and on the right there is 16 digit numer that varies from point to point. What I need to know is how to search for a particular pin number. The find comand does not work. I have attached the file I am working with if anyone wants to give it a try.

That "OD:smileytongue:P2_POINT" item is not ordinary AutoCAD stuff. It may be extended data, or special "Object Data" that is related to AutoCAD MAP. Try posting your question in their discussion area.
