Dynamic block in action does not reflect test block

Greetings.

 

I am in the process of fixing one of our dynamic blocks. It's a fairly simple fix where there was a typo in one of the names of our items in the lookup that needed to be fixed.

 

I changed the name of the item in the lookup table. I went and did the test block and it seemed to work fine, but when I bring the block into a drawing, it reverts back to the old lookup as if I did nothing at all.

 

I made sure that the path was correct and I even just dragged and dropped straight from Windows Explorer to no avail.

 

Does AutoCAD keep referring to the old block? Did I forget to change something else?

 

Thanks.

A "Purge" of the block in your drawing before you bring it in again should do the trick.

Hello

 

Have you tried a BATTMAN or ATTSYNC command to resynchronize the new definition of the Block ?

 

Bye, Patrice

I tried BATTMAN and ATTSYNC but I think those are only useful if my dynamic block had attributes.

 

Purging the block worked!

 

Thanks to you both.
