Subject: Adding formulas in an Autocad Field
Question:
Bill, I was reading about your work and hope you can help me.
I use Autocad 2008 and yesterday I found up the FIELD command and thought it
could help me so much because I always extract text and numbers from my
model.
Imagine I have a MTEXT which content´s is "500-DIT-001" (it´s an equipment)
and i want to generate its cable named 500DIT001-P, so I use the FIELD
command to extract the MTEXT CONTENT.
FIRST QUESTION:
Can I change the " _Object ID" relatet to the MTEXT?
-I was reading some posts and says that the Object ID sometime changes when
Autocad is closed and openned several times, still not happened to me but I
just wanna be sure-
SECOND QUESTION:
Once I got the content from the Mtext using the field command, I want to
eliminate or replace the "-" with blank spaces or a hollow, is that posible?
I´d be glad and pleased with your answer.
Thanks for all
Antony

Well, since he "always" extracts text and number, I don't think he wants to
know how to do that. And I'm not that familiar with fields to answer this
one off the top of my head.
