Im looking into toggling on/off layer through excel but id like to know if there is a way to do it through the command prompt or perhaps a lisp routine that can do this? Any help is appreciated

Sure you can, although toggle and "at the command line" don't really go
together: -LAYER command (note the dash), automate in a menu macro or lisp.

You can also use the Layer Palette if it is up and on display, LAYOFF (or
LAYFRZ) and pick what to turn off, or the Layer pulldown menu in the Layer
toolbar if you are in toolbar setup.

Also explore the LAYWALK command.
