Is there a way to select a xref by the name?

I would like to use it in a script along with Draworder, moving the xref to the back.

But this option is not in the list: 

Select Object: Window/Last/Crossing/BOX/ALL/Fence/WPolygon/CPolygon/Group/Add/Remove/Multiple/P
revious/Undo/AUto/SIngle/SUbobject/Object.

 

You can use a line of lisp to do it for you:

(ssget "x" '((2 . "*Parcel*")))

 

Replace "*Parcel*" with the name of the xref you want to select. Or use wildcards as I did...what I show will select all Inserted blocks (which includes Xrefs) whose name includes Parcel. It is not case-sensitive.
